I apologise for not sharing the next instalment of our Gentle Domesticity book study on Tuesday as I'd planned.
Listening to the Lord and my body at the moment, being mindful of the current season of life we're in and knowing that rest is needed in order to be refreshed, I'm stepping away for a little while.
Perhaps for a few days, maybe a week or more...but there's a needful lesson in this.
Giving out eventually takes a toll; it can quite simply empty you, and right now I'm physically running on empty.
My spirit is full and keeps filling because the Lord is moving me into a beautiful season of growth and understanding and guidance for what lies ahead...but my body and mind are tired and in true need of gentle rest.
"Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest."
Maybe you need a little rest too?
If so, be encouraged to know that while absent I am praying for you to walk in His perfect rest and to experience the fullness of God's perfect refreshment as well.
