Valentine’s Retreat

After my friend, Robin, had gone through a painful divorce, she decided to do something to bless my marriage. On Valentine’s Day, she cleaned her house, set the table with candles, made a lasagna, and came to my house to babysit my child. My husband and I were sent to hers to enjoy a romantic evening with a hot tub and fabulous meal. Though it was just her home, she had turned it into a retreat for a couple in need of some time alone.

Your home can become retreat for anyone you know that needs time away. Why not offer it to a friend, a couple, a family, or even your pastor while you are away for a day, or while you are on vacation.
