That’s right! On vacation!! Just Beachin’! Woot! Woot!
Most of you know my love for the beach, so yup, it’s spring break and we are taking a much needed rest! I’m praying it will be a time of re-connection,recovery, and rejuvenation. If you find me on social media, I’ll be posting highlight pics!

It was so fun to get all the entries last week for the giveaway of Lisa Murray’s book, Peace for a Lifetime! I get to send a copy to Alison!! Thanks so much for joining in, friend! If you didn’t win, keep checking back because I love giving stuff away. I’m sure I’ll be having another giveaway soon!
Also, be watching for Saturday, March 19th and Tuesday, March 22nd. Those are not my usual posting days, however I am thrilled to tell you I am going to be guest posting at two of my all time favorite blogs! It is such gift to me to have the opportunity to encourage others in the very same places I have been encouraged for years! I’ll be at (in)courage on the 19th and at Suzie Eller’s on the 22nd! I’ll post links here so you can find me. It would make me smile big to see you stopping by to visit me on those sites!!
But for now, friends, I just want to leave you with my heart and my prayer for you!
Dear Father, You are so mighty and powerful but yet so compassionate and filled with love You so intricately designed us and know our every need. In those needs, you put rest. You designed our bodies and minds for rest. But, Lord, You also know us well and know it is often so difficult to carve out that time for ourselves so we need Your wisdom and guidance in creating that time for rest. We mix up our need for rest with caring for others, working, tending to the world’s many calls and even having fun! I pray You place those boundaries in each of us. Give us clarity in recognizing when we need that rest. And Lord, would You spoil each one of these precious people and give them gentle and beautiful opportunities? Whether it is a nap in the middle of the afternoon, a quiet walk on a beautiful day, a private retreat, or a family vacation, would You please lavish each one here? Lord, in Your precious Name I pray. Amen.
If you haven’t signed up already, I would love for you to do so. You will also get a digital copy of my companion journal, “7 Truths to Remember About Betrayal”, and 7 Originally Designed Thank You Cards.
