Personal retreats--what do you do?
Sometimes the stress of daily life can get to us. It is in times like these when we need to consciously turn to God, but we may not have the resources to physically get away to an organized retreat.
When I feel the need to become more in tune with the Presence of God, I burn incense, play CDs of Sacred Choral works and read the prayers of the Day from Magnificat Magazine. It really helps remind me that there is a life beyond this earthly one and that God is there to lean on. It helps get things into perspective.
What do you do during your personal retreat times? What helps you feel closer to God?
