Sheldon Retreat

Quiet, peaceful, tranquility, grace
Remoote, secluded, found God in this place

Our problems are bought here, and laid out bare
We`re replenished, restored, strengthened through prayer

Nature around us, time for reflection
The spirit within us, points a new direction

Enjoyment and laughter, we`re hearing the call
Kindness and friendship, supporting us all.

Time for departure, going onwards with Jesus
Secure in the knowledge, that God`s all around us.

I went on a retreat quite a few years ago at a place called Sheldon. It was very peaceful and remote, but had everything there on site that you needed. It was a very refreshing weekend and I got a lot out of it.
I wrote this poem on the last evening I was there.
