Widows Journey Retreat Update

It's a tough time to make travel decisions, isn't it? The unexpected is now expected! 

But if you're wanting to come to the Widows Journey Retreat, seriously consider and pray about it--don't just automatically decide against it. These retreats have become turning points for so many widows. They arrive feeling empty and afraid, and they leave feeling renewed, refreshed and restored. It's a special place to meet with God, and it's a life event that you can always look back on and see a difference. Click here for registration info.

If you are concerned about social distancing, here is their Health & Safety policy. 

As far as the Widows Journey retreat itself, you'll find that chairs will be set farther apart in the auditorium with good ventilation. Attendees will be encouraged to wear masks; the Sandy Cove staff wears them all the time. 

For meals, the dining room will be serving guests, instead of the buffet in years past. 

Rooms are still available, and if you are worried about arrival delays, plan to come on Thursday, the day before. I think I will do that this year; let me know when you are arriving and we could chum around together before everyone else gets there. 

Here is the cancellation policy which is always important to consider.

These decisions are always hard to make by yourself. But you do have time since it's not until March 4-6. Here in New York, the governor is hopeful that our pandemic numbers have already spiked and we're beginning to see a reduction in people getting sick. Perhaps six weeks from now we'll be able to move about more freely again, in my opinion. 

I myself tested positive for covid last Wednesday! It was a bit disturbing to think I had it, but I was fortunate to have a mild case; I've had colds which were a lot worse. I lost my sense of smell, but I think it's starting to come back already.

This is one of those situations that you must decide what would be best for your individual circumstance. This retreat is important enough, though, that bringing it to the Lord for His direction will be something you will not regret, no matter what you decide. 

Have a blessed week! Stay warm! And if you have any questions, please email me at
