Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

So, I've basically taken a small Sabatical from my bi-weekly prayer group. Between all the illness running around here, the trips to New Jersey to help clean out my Grandparent's house, the lack of sleep because Bunny is teething again, and the growing and refining God's got going on, I'm just flat out and because there are some nights we storm the throne room doors until 10:30-11, I've been opting out for almost a month and a half. I have to confess that I am exhausted and it may well be because I've given up a crucial time between me and the Lord. Coming together with this particular group of women is always a blessing and our prayers are heard and answered. Not only is it encouraging as a woman, wife, and mother, but is re-energizes me for the Kingdom of Heaven and all that we can do while we are "trapped" here. We're meeting tomorrow, and I can't wait. I'm so tired, I can barely see, but I'm going. I know Friday will be a whole different day if I don't. Thank you God for blessing me with this group of amazing women who make it a priority to be with you on a regular basis and have been for almost 6 YEARS now!!!!!!


  1. How was your long overdue meeting?! I am sad that you feel "trapped" here, though. This is such a wonderful life and every day is a gift....I look forward to many many years of entrapment here with you :)

  2. My meeting was lovely and just what I needed. I must agree that every day is a gift and it's people like you and relationships like ours that make life fun. I think I'm just in a plce where I need to know that all the laundry, lack of sleep and work it is taking to be a better person is actually for a bigger purpose than just for now. I know I will see some benefits now, but I hope for the day that God, the One who made me for a purpose, will say "Well done, good and faithful servant. You have accomplished all I have created you for. Welcome home."
