Earlier this week we went on a vacation-within-a-vacation to Lipa City, located outside of Metro Manila. It was very quiet and peaceful. We stayed in a home for missionaries who need a bit of rest. We slept deeply. None of us brought our electronic equipment along (except for our cameras, obviously. :)
On our second day we visited a nearby resort which was pretty much empty. We were glad to support the local economy and enjoyed their lovely pools.
I also spent some time reading a selection of Fenelon's letters in the book The Seeking Heart. Good stuff, especially if you're interested in spiritual formation and direction. I may be quoting him in the future.
