Solitude and Rest
The view from Delphi in Greece down toward the Gulf of Corinth.
"Come away all by yourselves to a solitary place and rest a while," Jesus says to the apostles when they return from the work he has sent them to do (Mark 6:31.) Solitude and rest are necessary for growth in our relationship with God. For some of us it may be our porch; for others it may be a mountaintop. God is always with us, but resting in solitude gives God a better chance to get at us.
