Today I’m off to the Rhode Island coast for a weekend retreat with my favorite sisters. I’m not sure if it’s appropriate to have a “favorite” order of religious women, but oh well. God understands. I know this because he tells me. Doesn’t that make me sound like one of those little kids in the scary movies who says she knows the house is going to blow up because the voices told her? Well, in real life it’s not like that. I consider God the voice in my head. You know – the one that tells you…well, I don’t know what he tells you. But he tells me it’s okay not to capitalize pronouns when talking about him. And lets me off the hook about a lot of things that growing up Catholic made me feel guilty about. My favorite thing is to make him laugh. I do that a lot. You know that saying, “If you want to make God laugh, make plans”? It’s true. I make him laugh all the time.
Anyway, I must get packing. One of these days I’ll figure out how to get the pictures off my phone so I can post one of this place. Picture three story circa 1950’s inn sitting on a rock ledge. Over the rock ledge? The ocean. Picture going to sleep at night hearing the ocean. And if I’m lucky, they gave me a room overlooking it:)
