Yesterday we scrapped our afternoon, put the kids in the car and went just a few extra miles out of town to catch some fresh air, new scenery and have fun TOGETHER. While this seems counterintuitive, particularly for a this control nut whose plate, probably much like yours, is overflowing with dates, deadlines, kids that need authentic TLC, housework, clients calling and more, getting back to our roots actually renews our focus, refreshes our stamina and resolve and has always provided the best night of rest.
Heart Check: The byproduct of taking a brief break from circumstances and/or stressors proves to be well worth leaving behind what on the surface appear to be giants. Are you letting the stress of your circumstances to keep you from giving yourself a short and simple “time-out” to renew yourself?
Chasing Faith: Getting away yesterday renewed my spirit and encouraged my faith. Spring is in full force with bursts of color everywhere, tadpoles, roaring river water from the mountain runoff and each of these elements reminded me how creative and detailed my God is; how powerful, nurturing and in control He is. If he can care for all these things THAT I CAN SEE, how much more is He in control that I’m unaware of? I stand amazed!
