My Personal Retreat...

I had felt since mid way through summer, that I needed to set some time aside this Autumn in order to pray, plan and have a personal retreat with my God. Mark agreed with my plans and enabled me to get away to this wonderful place in Leamington. It was a stretch for me to go away with only my CDs and my thoughts to keep me company, but it was wonderful...God is So very very good. Just wanted to share a special place that was such a gift to me. It is so easy to hear God in the beauty of such natural surroundings...


Pelee national Park has a bird sanctuary and a butterfly sanctuary...it is also the most southern point in Canada, therefore a few weeks behind us in the seasons...there were butterflies everywhere. As it was late in the season, it was not very populated, and it felt as though I had my own personal sanctuary....shared with some of these beauties.

I spent my time on this beach laying in the sand, listening to the waves and talking with God...it was BEAUTIFUL!
I loved that there was such variety in the landscape and nature in this park. Marsh, trails through the woods, and my personal favorite, the BEACH!!!!









The most southern point in Canada is this very stretch of sand reaching out into Lake Erie.
