Retreats . . . a pilgrim's stopover

Life is a journey. A retreat- our layover. It has always been that way . . . from our conception in the womb of a woman we call mother, from our grasping the first gasp of air at birth,  toward our expansion amidst the daily grind, and through the end of our mortal forms, we've been on a constant journey through life.  Thus, we aptly call our selves - pilgrims.  This earth is our temporary home with heaven within us and beyond as our eternal destination.  A retreat is our stopover to ruminate and to appreciate this journey even more. And so for us pilgrims. . . here's a psalmist's prayer to help us in remembering . . .

PSALM 84 (vs 6-8)
Prayer of a Pilgrim to Jerusalem

Happy are those who find refuge in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrim roads.
As they pass through the Baca valley,
they find spring water to drink. 
also from pools the Lord provides 
water for those who lose their way.
They pass through outer and inner wall
and see the God of gods on  Zion.
