I cannot take credit for today's blog title! Is brought to you by my mom, Sue! Poor mother! Almost every Saturday morning at 7am she gets an ear-full from her first born as I call to check in with the intent of seeing how all is going with her and daddy! (Don't worry all of you nite-owls, she is always up and watches the clock for my call!) The tables always turn as she inquires of my past week, the weekend and what all is on my schedule for the upcoming week! She can never keep up with my many locations, jobs, events, and activities that I have going, nor can I for that matter! I don't expect anyone to!! Yet she listens and I unload! She is in the same boat! Always something going on! We shared conversation of a busy life and the prayer request of strength and sustainability.
Service and volunteering run deep in my family!
Back to my story and visit with mother on the phone...! As usual, I was listing off all of the reasons why I wasn't coming up to see them anytime soon because my plate is too full. "On top of it all..." I told her, "It's my turn to blog and I haven't a clue what to write!" She immediately responded with May Day! Mayday! "I love it!" I exclaimed, while exploding with laughter! Clever! Yes, I can relate to this and so can everyone else! Today as I am writing...it's May 1, 2016. May Day! Y'all, summer is right around the corner! Hang in there...especially if you are a teacher! Only 3 weeks left!
I don't know, there just seems to be something exciting about the end of May. I guess it's the end of one season and the beginning of another for me! I already have a list a mile long of things to accomplish and before I can blink...poof!...it will be fall again! Yikes! I know...Sherry...take it one day at a time! But we have so many cool things happening!!(smiley face)
It's Soul Care, people!
Most importantly, only you can take care of that!
It's not a luxury...it's a necessity!
At the booth last Tuesday, women kept telling me of their need for restoration, rest, and refocus. Their eyes were weary, shoulders slumped at the weight of their burdens and speech told of a heavy heart. Sound familiar? They lingered in the beauty of the booth. I had soft music playing, flowers, and the scent of fresh linen graced the air! It was a tiny reflection of our Restore Retreats. God has uniquely called me and Kathy to this ministry of soul care. It's important to pull away from rush of your busy life. We seek to minister creatively to the heart and spirit by providing opportunities to soak in the richness of God’s Word, His beauty, Worship and the Arts. It is our prayer that you will join us and experience the transforming work of grace and restoration that the Lord wants to do in your life.
He (God) will restore YOUR soul and guide YOU in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Ps. 23:3
Turn your Mayday, Mayday plea into May Day glee!
