Think time

12 Aug

When I’m at my desk, time gets away and my accomplishments rarely match my plans.  But once a month if at all possible I take a personal retreat day….for prayer, relaxation, reading, planning, and most difficult of all, thinking without distractions.  This little building is designed and reserved for exactly that purpose.  Just ten minutes from our home is a Pastors’ Center that provides counseling, relaxation and a retreat for Latin pastors and leaders.  They graciously allow me to use this separate place for my personal retreat days for around seven dollars.  Today was one of those days, and I have returned home refreshed, renewed and having accomplished planning that was woefully behind.  I highly recommend this practice to anyone, no matter what your vocation.
