Had a great weekend on my retreat. I also wrote a lot, so look forward to a bunch of retreat themed entries. We'll start off slow though. I came up with a few goals for the retreat.
Goals for the retreat
On this retreat I want to:
-find the quiet in a noisy mind/world
-learn to forgive others and myself
-heal my relationship with God
-open myself up to people
We'll see how well I did.
QBP: We focused on the Beatitudes this past weekend so...Matthew 5:3-12 (NIV).
"Blessed are the poor in spirit,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirstfor righteousness,for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecutedbecause of righteousness,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
