I’ve spent the last three blog-free weeks catching up.

Catching up on my sleep. On family time. On yard work. On the massive pile of ironing and mending. On sorting the mountain of outdated toys in the basement in preparation for a garage sale. On my to-be-read pile.

Somewhere, in the middle of all my catching up, my dreams caught up with me and the ideas are flowing again. By giving myself the amazing permission to do things when I felt like it (instead of being driven by my ambitious goal lists), I gained rest. And freedom. And, believe it or not, progress.

Who would have thought it was possible to get things done while resting? Certainly not me. But God’s mercy is amazing and I’m learning yet again to let Him lead.

So, while I’m back, I’ll be posting less frequently for the rest of the summer. Consider it a lesson learned. (Not to mention the family vacation later this month!)

What about you? What have you been catching up on?

    >I've had a hiatus too. The last hectic weeks of school, an 8-day vacation, and adjusting to kids being home have kept me away from the computer (blogging).

    I realized that it was okay, that it's here for me whenever I have time for it. No harm done.

    Glad your "time off" was rewarding. EnJoy your vacation!

    I think its amazing when you take a breather and see how much more you can accomplish, once we are recharged.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
