A Time to Reflect and Pray!

The walkway through the orchard leading up to the
Retreat House which has recently been refurbished and
which is almost a hundred years old.

We have been away this past weekend on a Lenten retreat to reflect and pray with family and friends...it was a lovely experience and through this post would like to thank those who have given their energy and time to make this possible and truly fulfilling, you all know who you are ~ thank you from the bottom of our hearts and well done! Blessings to you and yours.

It was a time to reflect and pray, a time to relax and share our free time, a time to appreciate and give thanks to Our Lord and to get to know each other better..... here are some few photos I took which I'd like to share with you...

Selmun Palace can be seen in the distance

St.Paul's Islands

A close up of one of the islands.

We could see this olive tree right from our window

Beautiful almond blossoms adorned the orchard

A close-up picture of these lovely spring blossoms is inspirational:
just like the bare trees after the dark winter,
let us leave the past behind and take a leap into the freshness
and promise of spring, an excitement full of energy
and a time for reflection and a NEW START!


    The location suggests contemplation.

  2. Hi Doreen, I think we all feel the need to get away from it all sometimes...to relax and reflect on all that's so wonderful about our lives. We are so negative about what's bad about this world that we rarely ever notice the amazing God-given things that surround us. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, so beautifully put together!

  3. Thanks Sue and Francis, your comments are greatly appreciated!

  4. Oh, how beautiful! Blossoms! If you looked out my window right now you wouldn't believe it! We had a snow blizzard last night, and it's supposed to snow off and on for the next 10 days!Enjoy your lovely springtime!

  5. Beautiful pictures! The tree blossoms are very pretty!
