Can you tell I need a break?
My husband sent me a surprise e-mail saying pack an overnight bag, I'm taking you on a secret rendouzvou. Hmmm, I pondered. . .
for a about the length of a second. . .and then these words came to my mind
. . .HALLELUJAH! THANK YOU JESUS!
I was needing a break I tell ya! And as a true blogger, as I have been deemed by people, ( I think just because I carry a camera), I had to chronicle it. It's just more fun!
NO, WAIT! The idea was to get away from work, people, computers, laptops and cameras! It was all put away. Sorry. . .it was great but no pics
After telling my college age son we were going away for a couple of days, he looked sad and asked if I would be leaving any food and would I do his laundry before I left. What do you think I said to the big boy. . .
I'll just say he figured out how to feed himself, he didn't waste away and there was a pile of laundry waiting for me when I got back.
People have been asking me about the get-away.
As my husband called it, it's a secret. Some things are better just left unsaid and unwritten.
But I can tell you this. An overnighter and a couple days away from the routine of life can do wonders for the tired soul and mind.
Can you tell. . .
Thank you sweet Jesus for the gift of a sweet husband, sweet time away and refreshment.
Just what the doctor ordered. . .I didn't know it, but the two loves of my life did!
I'm ready to go again, full steam ahead! Thank you Lord!
But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
Do you ever just need to get away?
I think Jesus did.
Where do you go?
Sometimes, just a "Calgon, take me away" is great :)
