Rest and Renewal
Here are some scenes from my Saturday morning walk around the grounds here at the Franciscan Renewal Center. Although there were a few odd, quirky things, like the Labyrinth, and the sayings on the wall of the chapel, I found it relaxing to simply stroll, taking my time, taking pictures, and feeling to particular pressure to hurry up, since I had nowhere I needed to be at any particular time.
The Healing Garden was small but very pretty.
The walk back to my dorm room.
And from another little walk around the back half of the trails before sunset…
A little walking, a little quiet, a little prayer, a little fresh air. I am *so* doing this again… 🙂

I’m feeling refreshed just looking at these pictures. What a beautiful place!
It is really quite lovely. If I lived nearby I would probably come here to walk every day!
Really does look like a restful place! Thanks for sharing this experience!
Hi..Can you send me the pics and I will post on our website and facebook?
You bet – just sent you several emails with photos. Hope they will be a blessing. 🙂
