Up since 5:00 AM, watching the spring rains come down this overcast morning, the first of five “vacation” days. Days to catch up in the office both professionally and personally, do some yardwork, enjoy my family, and life in general.
Finishing the morning’s coffee and orange juice, getting ready to read some Scripture, then the Times and the Journal before tackling some projects in the office.
Thinking how thankful I am for friends, both old and new.
How often I need times like this, yet how seldom I intentionally schedule them. Resting, regenerating, regrouping, rediscovering my passion and purpose, and reigniting the fire to lead, serve, and encourage others.
Hey, have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day holiday weekend, counting blessings along the way, and being an encouragement to all who God brings into our lives.
