I've come down from a mountain high into the chaos of real life. Conferences and retreats always do that to me. I get so pumped up being around other women with similar passions and struggles and I wish I could stay in that place forever.
But the dishes and laundry call. And the kids tug or climb up my leg for attention. And hungry stomachs growl while I type away at writing projects, VBS work, Children's Ministry vision and planning and entertaining company.
I've been a little overwhelmed over the past few weeks. I went from a quiet stay at home mom lifestyle to a crazy busy summer mom. I love every single thing I'm doing, but One thing has not remained at top priority. And that's got to change.
So, I'm off to the wilderness to soak up God's presence, unhindered by any plugs, paper or telephones. I'll be hiking, fishing, and resting in the splendor of GOd's creation. And, as a major bonus, I'll get to spend uninterupted time with my lifetime lover.
It's been ten years since we began this journey and I'm more in love with him today than I ever was (if that's possible). I can't wait to spend a whole week alone in his company. The kids will have a blast at Grandma's, of this I'm sure.
So, I'm off to breathe in the fresh air and I'll check back in with you in a week!
