We just got back from a much needed vacation to Austin. It is always so wonderful to get away and rejuvenate my family and myself. I was definitely in need. It reminds me of the verse from the Bible.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
We spent the week with my sister and her family. We laughed a lot, talked a lot and just enjoyed being around one another. I also spent time by myself, which is a must for me. I need time to process things and spend time in God’s word. During this time alone, I really hear God speaking to me and telling me which way I am supposed to go. Things have been crazy lately in my family and I haven’t had any alone time to just be. I find I get very lost when things are too busy and I don’t make time for God and myself. Since I have gotten back from Austin I feel much more grounded and focused on what my purpose is and what God wants from me.
