I had plaaned to “book end” my sabbatical by spending 24 hours on retreat at Richmond Hill. Before heading there, I asked my friend Jerry to meet me for lunch at the Peking Restaurant in Mechanicsville. It seemed fitting since this was the way I began my sabbatical journey.
I confessed to Jerry that I was not sure I wanted to go through with the retreat. I had so much unpacking and sorting still left to do. Jerry insisted that I needed go and to be open to what God had in store for me because my journey was not over. Actually, our spiritual journey is never over. He paraphrased a translation of a verse in Romans 8 from The Message which says: What’s up Pops? Jerry inisisted that God (Pops) had something for me. He was right! But that’s tomorrow’s post.
i count it all joy,
