And rest… 😌

I am going to experiment with rest and retreat in the coming week, taking a break from everything online, phone calls and watching the news etc. I’m thinking of it as a kind of “retreat at home”. I’m also breaking our household routine of praying in the morning mon-fri, to allow myself some more lie ins, and the freedom to go with whatever rhythm my resting body and mind seem to need. I will still be cooking and eating with my housemates in the evenings though. And maybe I’ll join them for a film night once or twice.

If I feel in need of this, when I have not actually been all that busy, I’m wondering how many others must do? As I retreat I pray that somehow or other rest will come to all those who need it.

Hopefully by next weekend I will be full of beans and ready to dive back in again. Watch this space…!
