A few months ago I got an email inviting me to attend a little retreat in Croatia. I had to look the country up on a map. When I flew into the city of Dubrovnik, I had no idea what I was entering. I started out my year thirty-seven with an almost indescribable view, quiet times on a rocky sea shore every morning, some truly refreshing fellowship and singing, and a lot of digging in deeper to God's way forward for me in this season.
One afternoon, I walked the fortress wall that encircles the old town. It basically held back the Ottoman Empire. What a gem. One of the most fascinating walks I've ever taken. As you can tell, I couldn't get enough pictures of this place.
