Sabbatical

I've been quiet for quite some time...it's been a season where I've been asking questions and redefining some areas of my life...and I've found in those seasons it's best to keep your mouth shut.  So that's what I've done!

I'm currently on Day 4 of a 40 Day Sabbatical (after working at the church for 8.5 years, I'm tired and lacking vision)...  So I'm getting some rest & hoping to clarify what is next.  It's only been 4 days but I already am hearing the Lord more clearly than I have in a while - He's doing some work on my heart, opening my eyes to see beauty around, and challenging some actions and beliefs that I've held.  Who knows what the next 36 days will hold...but I'm expectant and nervous at the same time.

So, I'll continue to mostly be quiet...but I will be back.

Until next time - look at one of the little beauties that God has been pointing out to me.  There is a bird's nest on my back porch & Selah and I have become fascinated with these little ones as they grow!

These little guys still have their eyes closed...but are precious!

And of course I'm also quite taken with this beauty!  What a joy she is!

I just want to squeeze those little legs!

Until next time, I pray that God grants you restful days and eyes to see the beauty that points to His goodness.

I am SO excited about this 40 day season of yours! I've been praying for fantasticness...and will continue to do so. I know you're gonna come out the other side with a whole new perspective!

Way cool. I'm so excited to see how God blesses you and your family in these 40 days. Cheers to defining and clarifying vision.

Thanks so much for sharing that you are doing this. Being in an extended sabbatical time myself, it is encouraging to know that others whom I have a lot of respect for too, also go through those seasons of needing more clarity and vision and purpose for the future.

I look forward to hearing what God shows you in this time, and growing from your journey as well.

Thanks Jenn, Javier, and Lindsey...

All 3 of you are people whom I admire for the way you seek the Lord, and I appreciate your encouragement during this time away.

God is so good to slow us down from time to time & help us realign with His true purposes.

Blessings to you three as well!
