the need for time away

And so I begin my annual trek to Maine, where I read, relax, and spend time with my beloved.  What does this mean?

  • no blogging for the next month..I will return in July
  • no emails for the next two weeks...going "dark" has its benefits
  • plenty of books to read...and read and read and read
  • TV shows and movies to catch up on...I thank God for Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu
  • reconnecting with nature...time with birds, flowers, trees, and water
  • reconnecting with one else but the two of us
  • forgetting the stress of emails, no calls, no texts, no decisions
  • remembering God's goodness...this is truly my sanctuary
  • watching for "wildlife"...birds, chipmunks, and an occasional seal
  • time to catch my breath...and remember that there is more to life than work
Whether you take a day, a weekend, a week, two weeks, or an entire month (or more), please take the time to breathe and create margin in your life to relax and remember that life is a gift from God...relish that life at work, at home, and wherever your travels lead you.  See you in July!
