God does not take a vacation

“Stacking stones claims ordinary moments of life for God and invites those who pass by to
notice the holy ground on which they already stand.”

Jayne Hugo Davis

During these precious weeks of Summer…
as you make plans to scatter either here, there and yon…

Or if you’re merely daydreaming of doing such….

If you’re eagerly anticipating escaping your hectic pace and grind of an
often monotonous and even overwhelming life…

Simply longing to seek cooler climates, grander vistas, idyllic sandy shores…

Remember one thing as you eagerly unplug, unwind, let go and forget all the
burdens you wish to leave behind…

God never takes a vacation.

He’s always there…wherever you may roam….
always near…
and always reminding you that you’re still His number one priority….

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear or be in dread of them:
for it is the Lord your God who goes with you;
he will not fail you or forsake you.”

Deuteronomy 31:6

    Hope you had a good vacation and are all refreshed and raring to go. You were missed❀️

    • it was an adventure of misadventure–which I’ll share—I often feel that is my duty to bring laughter to others at the my own life’s expense πŸ™‚

      • That should read at my own life’s experiences– ode to thumbs

        We are so much alike in that way. I’ve always tried to shuck things off with a laugh, but there are times when even a laugh doesn’t help. I am getting your comments by the way.

      • Good that you’re “seeing” me–
        I felt that enough was enough on the second day of the journey when I realized I’d made a major booking blunder which showed that I was losing my trip planning extraordinaire abilities—which will all be in the soon coming post if errors πŸ™ƒπŸ˜Ά

        Oh bummer! I think I look forward to hearing what happened.

    It’s good to go but always good to come home. We who have the choice are greatly blessed. I helped with a retreat this past weekend for women who would not get out of the city if we didn’t arrange this retreat. I felt so privileged and humbled to share their journeys which have been fraught with much difficulty. I pray that they feel the presence of God with them. Blessings and welcome back Julie.

  4. So glad you’re back and this is splendid! πŸ™‚ ❀
