retreat: a retirement for a period for religious exercises and meditation.
retreat : the forced or strategic withdrawal of an army or armed force before an enemy.
I like the second one personally. I have been on some women’s retreats that were entirely too religious. Not for me . Not my thing. What I need is a forced withdrawal from the wolves at my door. The enemy who is always trying to take more. I want a time of rest, and laughter, and revelation about 2014 ! I want a journal filled with ideas for homeschool, and poems that speak to the heart of me .
I am never the first to sign up for a ladies retreat, and I always second guess whether or not I actually want to go…but I’m always glad that I did. Always. I am looking forward to this one, I am expectant.
