We’re packing up to head to Nashville for the weekend where we will spend time with dear friends. I’m hoping to be refreshed during this time away.
It’s been a hard couple of days for me and my family. I won’t go into details here. All I can say is that I am desperately grateful, in times like these, that I have the knowledge and peace of God’s grace and mercy in my life. Knowing that He is ultimately in full control gives me some emotional relief.
Physically, however, I’m struggling. I feel like someone has jabbed me repeatedly with a toothpick from the base of my skull down the back of my legs. Even a half hour in the hot tub followed by the steam room yesterday did not ease the knots that have settled down the back half of my body. Perhaps a weekend away will help ease the stress – or maybe it won’t. I don’t know, but I do hope.
The kids are excited to play with their friends and Lee is excited to play in not one but two rounds of golf. And I am just excited for a change of scenery.
So I’m off. I have about 50 minutes before Lee comes home and I need to squeeze two hours worth of chores into that time frame. I’ll be back Monday…
