But my God calls me to rest, to healing, to quiet... and to Him.
So we did it. After an amazing, Trust-God week working with the best volunteer staff EVER at Vacation Bible School, the hubs and I took a vacation. A real one. Not an overnight to check off something from our list, but an actual 5 day trip to the woods. A summer camp for grown-ups. A retreat. A coming away and a drawing close. Over the next few posts, I'll share our adventure.
PART ONE: REST
Just rest. No schedule. No deadlines. Just doing whatever we felt like doing. Being creative. Wearing whatever felt worn and soft. Why not have a nap? (You can learn alot from watching a dog.)
How does one find comfy rest in the woods? We reserved one of our favorite sites at our favorite place to camp: Sherando Lake. It's so clean and rich green and this site has lots of dappled shade. Perfect!
Now, set up the tent. Yes, a tent. And yes, it's comfy. It's a big tent. Two room with a detachable room divider. And full stand up height. And the entire front zips open into a sort of screened-in sleeping porch. Aaahhhhhh.
The remainder of our time away stood before us... we flung open our arms and embraced what the Lord would bring to us...
