I am off to a retreat this weekend at the Ignatius House in Atlanta. The title of the retreat is "A Friendship Like No Other". I am really looking forward to it.
It is funny how little things in our lives try to distract us from these opportunities to stop and listen to God. Just this week I have had an invitation to a party with my high school graduation class and the opportunity to see people I have not seen in 30 years; and a request to hang out with friends to watch the deciding stage of the Tour De France (to those who do not know me, bicycle racing is one of my passions). A few years ago, I may have opted to miss the retreat and attend these fun events.
Now, I cannot imagine being any other place.
