I believe that taking time away from the everyday grind is an important aspect of our spiritual walk. Through the fray of life, it can be difficult to hear God's voice and feel His gentle touch. Too much busy-ness can easily overtake us, leaving us feeling parched.

I like to plan for the odd weekend away to counteract the dry times. For me, nothing refreshes quite like corporate worship, inspired teaching, and not having to cook or clean (grin). It reconnects me to the Source of Living Water.

Pat and I, along with another couple, are heading off this weekend for a conference.

If we come to your mind this weekend, please pray that the four of us will be refreshed. That we will feel His presence and hear His voice. That this time will be full of learning, growing, and joy. Please pray that none of us will have any worries while we're away, that our kiddos will be safe (and have lots of fun) at home with their caregivers. Thank-you.

May you find time for refreshment, too, as He calls you to come away with Him.
