Taking a Time Out

Time out for…
  • God
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Health
  • Me

Friends, I feel that God is leading me towards taking a break from the online world for the time being in order to focus more completely on the offline world – ie this thing we call Real Life.

In the meantime, you can browse my archives, and I will still be replying to comments as well as to emails {but don’t expect to see me on FB or Twitter} – however, I will be taking a break from blogging for a while.

If you want to be one of the first to know when I come back, be sure to use the form in the right sidebar to sign up for email updates – then, you’ll be in the loop when I return.

I am confident that I will have lots of stories and experiences to share – because when we follow God’s direction, we are truly blessed!

My people will be filled with my bounty. Jeremiah 31:14

Relax and Renew

When was the last time you relaxed? Let your children relax?

No, I don’t mean the let’s take a day off of school {so that we can clean the house} kind of relaxing.

I mean total relaxation – letting all the cares slip away and just be.

No responsibilities.


I ran across these girls celebrating their Spring Break.

Can you imagine anything more relaxing?

Now, I’m not suggesting that you necessarily need to run out and hang a hammock in a tree, but I did get inspired to try to take some real time off. Not that I would ever be guilty of that fake time off where I take care of housework instead. {Yeah, right.}

So, that’s my next assignment – plan a day {or maybe even a few days} of complete relaxation for the family.

What are some of your family’s favorite ways to cut loose and forget about all your cares? Tell me about it in the comments – we definitely need ideas!

Oh, and in case you’ve been inspired by these wonderfully creative young ladies, they told me that those hammocks are called ENO Hammocks.
