Posts Tagged ‘getaway weekend’

i went back home this past weekend

although i didn’t make it up this time, one of my favorite places to stop is the tower

this observation tower overlooks the small town where i grew up


climbing to the top is somewhat of a workout

but well worth it when you finally reach the top

and you see the incredible view

ok, maybe not the best picture, and obviously not taken in February, but trust me, the view is beautiful


seeing things from up so high is such a different perspective

everything looks so small and insignificant

so different from seeing things at ground level


it’s easy to get wrapped up in the day to day busyness of life

getting lost in the have-to’s of the day

rushing through the list of urgent to-do’s

and not quite getting to the important  things

sometimes we just need to step back from our busy lives and look at it with new eyes

from a new perspective


what are those important things?

how about:

what kind of friend am I

what kind of sister am I

what kind of spouse am I

what kind of mom


am I using my gifts to bless others

am I making time for myself

am I making time for my Savior

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2


take some time to be by yourself

step back and see the important things

pray about them


“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.”      Mark 1:35


do something this week to change your perspective

blessings cont.
