I've been tired (exhausted). Sick. Tired. Busy. Tired. Overwhelmed. Tired.
Do you see a trend here? ; )
I've logged on to Blogger many times. And stared at the screen wanting to post, but what do you post when the words won't come?
You don't. Or, I don't.
You stare at the screen, you read some posts from your favorite blogs, and you stare at that blank screen some more.......and then, you log off. Because you can't bring yourself to post when there's no inspiration ~~ or, maybe there is, but it's behind a closed door......waiting for healing, for a rested and rejuvenated spirit, for the fog to lift so that the words that are there can find their way to your fingertips again.
Perhaps the fog is clearing a little, because here I am. Perhaps the door has been unlocked, but it's not completely open.
Today, we're headed for a day in the country. Or, as close as we can get. A day ahead to spend with the ♥sweetest♥ kind of ♥friends♥........my favorite ones. The ones that just "get" you without even trying, the ones that you don't have to explain yourself to because their hearts are so much like yours. A day of fresh air, sunshine, laughter and fun. A day of breathing deeply & enjoying wide, open spaces......of watching my kids hang out with their favorite friends, too, and delighting in their freedom to run, play, and be loud and rambunctious without fear of disturbing neighbors whose houses are too close and ears too sensitive to the noise that healthy kids make.
A cake is baked. Picnic packed. And three kids whom I adore are anxiously asking, "Mom, can we leave soon?! We don't want to be late!!"
Mom doesn't want to be late, either.
Just wanted to slip you a note under that door......to let you know I didn't disappear for good. ; )
Claiming this verse this week, because I know the promises in His Word to be true, and rest my weary soul in the rejuvenating comfort of His love and grace:
"For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every languishing and sorrowful soul.”
