On this beautiful Sunday morning I have been greeted by a
harvest-hued palatte during an early morning walk, smiling retreat guests arriving for breakfast, golden ginkgo leaves blanketing the ground, the sharp crispness of the first really cool morning of fall…but the most beautiful experience of all was seeing lamplight glowing in various rooms of Ottilia Hall.
Ten Sisters are now living there, with the rest of us soon to follow. Tomorrow, the moving will start back in earnest. But for now we will enjoy a Sabbath rest. Thanks be to God for His manifold goodness to us!
