Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Rest. We all need it, yearn for it, especially at this time of the year when busyness takes up unprecedented residence in our lives as we prepare to celebrate Christmas and the coming of a brand-new year.
So, my husband, Danny, and I will leave this coming Monday to spend the week at the same mountain cabin, Nantahala Gorgeous, where we took granddaughter, Virginia Rose, this past June.
No, the view won't be anything like the summer one, but there is something enticing about the barren limbs of endless trees marching up the mountainsides like stalwart soldiers parading proudly before their Maker. With their branches lifted toward the heavens as if in prayer, they remind us to seek out quiet time with God.
To rest in Him.
And that's exactly what we intend to do.
That being said, I will be absent from this blog until January of 2020. And if I don't show up to read and comment on your blogs during this interim, I know you'll more than understand. Be assured that I will be keeping each and every one of you in my prayers.
Danny and I wish you all a Blessed and Merry Christmas, and a Healthy and Happy New Year!
