Well I’m up to Tahoe during the first part of the weekend for the Rolling Hills Women’s Retreat.
Work has been so crazy lately; there is so much pressure and stress. Plus I’ve been nursing myself back to life from a cold that is a lot like the “last 10 pounds to loose” — it just keeps hanging on! So, I’m pooped! I can’t even imagine how I’m going to unwind and keep up the pace. But I have hopes for the weekend: feel a little more refreshed, A LOT more rejuvenated and get springboards of new writing ideas.
Here’s what I do know: awesome things can happen in our weakness. When I’m tapped and think I don’t have an ounce more to give, yet I’m filled with the Spirit, unexpected good things can occur. This type of hope enables me to put one foot in front of the other.
Good Stuff to know: Isaiah 40:29-31 (NIV) He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint
Today I want to share with you an old song that I have always loved. I will probably be listening to this from one of my playlists on the drive up to Tahoe. This song is amazing every time I listen to it; it stirs something in me, like waking up all the butterflies in my stomach…in a really good way. This charges me up when I’m weak and weary, I will be led on.
LEAD ME ON – by Amy Grant
PS: Please shoot up a quick prayer for “Mercy Travels” for all of the RHCC gals going to up Tahoe for the weekend.
