I shut down this week for two days. Didn't leave the house unless I needed to ferry LD to school and activities. Didn't think about what I could be doing. Just. Shut.Down.
My schedule allowed this because by God's good mercy no meetings glared out on the calendar.
Further, my family is busy and if I stay below the radar, I don't think they noticed except that my bathrobe got a bit musty.
Retreat at home.
Into the desert without leaving the winter tropics.
Quiet time with the kitties and Sister the Dog.
Gray winter weather for days gets to my interior. Stopping to live the quiet just helps.
Today is bright sunshine. Yippee!
Tomorrow is Souper Bowl, the Lord's Supper and our Annual Congregational Meeting. I'll be ready, happy and bright-eyed.
