I am more than ready for a vacation.

Mine doesn’t involve me going anywhere special, although bubbles and pyjamas have a certain lure…

I like to call my staycation “Slumberland”, as I usually start by sleeping more than usual when coming off the rush rush pace I find myself getting caught up in.

For next week’s slumberland, for each day I am spending with family, I am spending one on my own when they all head off to work.

I am gearing up to:


Add more peace to my day, and less to do’s.


Preplan as much as I can for my freelance work, and remind myself not to feel guilty for taking a bit of time off.


Spend time soaking in God’s presence, listening to worship, walking in His creation.

Fill up.

Refuel my near empty batteries on His power filled Word.


Allow my soul, my spirit, my mind, my heart to become like new again by seeking His peace, joy, hope, love, without any rush.


Time to journal and pray, asking God to help me forgive, release and be set free in ways I may not realize I am until it take the time to…

Slow down.

No set schedule between this rest start and end time.

If I want to read, I read…. You got the picture!

Less go go go
More breathing in, then out.
Slowly, rhythmically.
Breathing out the old, stale, exhaustedness.
Breathing in the new, fresh, re-energized peace God has waiting for me…

When I surrender.

During my upcoming retreat, I plan on a few hours at least of no talking, no shopping, and saying no to any requests.

Its time for me to find the space for me to just me again….how about you?
