Getaway in the hopes of some relief

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…


  1. I will pray that you will be blessed during this time away.

  2. I’m sorry you are going through a rough time. I will pray that you will be refreshed during your weekend away!

  3. Praying for you guys.
    Hope your time away is refreshing to your soul.
    God will receive glory…in His way and time.
