I’m on my way home after being at ‘Sisters of Jesus Way’ in West Kirby on the Wirral Peninsula. I’ve been away from home over the past 5 days. Yep, I’ve missed my family very much, yet I have had such a good time too!
I’ve had a goal to write, and wow, I sure got a lot done but I also wanted to meet with God afresh and love him more and more.
You can’t help but meet with Him at that place. It is such a delightful home with a beautiful rhythm of prayer and rest. Night prayer is at 7pm and most people head off to bed afterwards. Refreshing. On some nights I was asleep 3 hours earlier than I usually get to. It did mean I got up megga early but I just felt so much better for it!
I have been writting about being Big Hearted. The sections on Big Hearted God refreshed me as I wrote and spent time considering what God is like. I spent time contemplating that God is Love. Good and Father.
I do realise how fortunate I am to put dates in the diary where I can escape to a bolt hole and dedicate good time in prayer and writing… If you ever get an opportunity and are looking for a place, I can highly recommend my friends at the sisters. I used to go there regularly when I lived in Chester and didn’t quite realise how much I missed going there.
