God knew what He was doing by creating and giving humanity the gift of Sabbath. It is an integral part of shalom…
And yet, it’s amazing how difficult it is for us to either ignore it or completely misunderstand it. I admit that I’m still learning how to relish, rest, and rejoice in this gift.
With that in mind, my family and I took two days to retreat this past weekend. We realized we couldn’t wait till the end of October for our two-week vacation.
If you’re around the Northwest and you’re looking for a great place just for you, your group, your family reunion, a church retreat, or some sort of conference, I really believe that THIS PLACE is one of the most beautiful retreat centers. It’s one of the most beautiful and best run places I’ve been to – and I have been to many places.
So, here’s my question:
Where do you go to rest, retreat, and Sabbath?
I ask this question because for me, I have a hard time to really “sabbath” when I’m in my normal surroundings because it’s easier to focus on the “my” stuff rather than resting in God’s provision and goodness.
Well, I even managed to convince my second daughter to try this thing called “The Blob” and as a result, she learned how to fly…
