A master-piece photograph from my son-in-law! My daughter is in the foreground with Ian and Dominic, my grandsons watching the photo- shooting action. The title sets the MOOD.
Moms need a break from the action.
A time to pull aside and drink deeply.
A time to inhale stability and exhale stress.
Coffee breaks are refreshing~caffeine kicks in to energize~ morning head- fog clears~ flavor soothes a soul-longing~sharing the moment with a friend deepens the delight~sipping prolongs the pleasure! What are you waiting for~ GO, make a cup!
How realistic is the prospect that my daughter can really pull this off, dress clothes and all? If she could escape for even a minute, Dominic cries for her in the background and commitments call.
Yet, so real is our Constant Companion, Jesus Christ. He is
refreshing our thoughts~Philippians 4:8
energizing our strength~Isaiah 40:31
clarifying our confusion~Philippians 3:15
soothing our longings for goodness~Psalm 34:8
delighting us through words with friends~Proverbs 27:9
lingering in us with sweetness~Psalm 119:103
Need a moment of escape, a quiet place to refocus, a back to lay your burden on, or a word you desperately need to whisper to someone who hears? He's always available for that quick break away, even if you can't stop the action around you.
My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
Especially during this holiday season, may you find those much-needed-breaks, my friend.
Thanksgiving be to God for you and for Spiritual Sundays!
