I have been on vacation this week….

In the past I would have told you I was not very good at vacation…

I wish I was more of a reader…

I wish I was more of a water person….

But for some reason, this year, I feel like I am getting better at being away….

I still am not a big reader, but I do carry my Kindle every where and have started reading…

I still am not a great water person but I have been doing some kayaking and floating in the water and find it quite delightful…





I am enjoying the laid back days and the abundance of people to interact with….


I am enjoying the sun and the breeze, the blue sky and the cool nights…

I am enjoying being less connected to my phone and my email, my scrabble, words with friends and scramble turns and my overall connectedness…

I am enjoying vacation and am very thankful for the opportunity I have to enjoy my family and the quiet space at Nichols Lake.

I cried during our popcorn prayer of thankfulness….the honesty and quick responses from my family reminded me of our gratitude…

I laughed with my sisters this week and am reminded of the friendship we enjoy….

I exercised with my Mom this week and as we worked out to the crazy voice of the boot camp app and I am reminded of the support I have for my goals….

I received word that my Aunt’s biopsy tested positive for cancer and I am reminded that even on vacation, real life continues…and it is not all sun and cool breezes….

But as a family we hold hands for devotion and together sing Step by Step….I am reminded that God invites us to learn to walk in His ways…on vacation or in my daily routine, in the presence of wonderful family and children or in the face of the reality of illness….

I smile as I consider the growth I have experienced when it comes to enjoying vacation…

But I am delighted for the legacy of faith that we share in small and big ways….which allows me to rest, even when I am not on vacation!
