Who Needs A Vacation Monday?

Are you raising your hand?
Did you stand up, 
seat knocking back right out from under you, 
saying, "I do, I do!"

Well, my friend, me too!
This week as you read these words, 
we are tucked away in a cabin 
by a pristine, peaceful, picturesque 
lake surrounded by mountains in beautiful Maine.

I will be soaking in the sunrise and enjoying 
every precious moment that God gives me.

I will gain new perspective.

I will see some old friends.

I will enjoy some quality time with
 these two crazies.

I will eat some of these.

I will sit by this most every night...

Perhaps make some memories with these folks, 
who are responsible for us becoming Maine-iacs!

I will be renewed, refreshed, relaxed and 
restored. This is my hope.

(course you know I will have my journal!)

If you could kindly pray for this family as we travel and come together for a much needed vacation together, 
I would appreciate it!

241. a family vacation 242. the beauty of the present moment 243. the hope of restoration 244. the power of choice 245. freedom to choose in every situation, how I will respond 246. the Holy Spirit

I will be away so not able to link up but here is where I usually do that!

miscellany monday at lowercase letters


  1. So happy for you, mixed with almost equal parts jealousy. But mostly happy and looking forward to the insights and fun stories you will bring home with you.

  2. Yes, I need a vacation! Looks wonderful. Enjoy!

  3. Thank you for sharing your vacation with us. I almost feel like I am there with you. This week would have been a perfect week to escape from work...but then, who would do my work? I'd have double to face when I returned....but I can at least dream along with you...enjoy your vacation and your family. Be blessed and refreshed!!! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  4. Great vacation, Dawn! I like that you became "Maine-iacs! When you asked who needs a vacation on Mandays, I thought that in our family we are so blessed because we begin our work week visiting our stores. It's kind of like a vacation, no paperwork or stress! patsy

  5. I hope you have had a great time. I am sorry I am late here. I am sorry I haven't commented. My life has been wild. But I am not lost. I am catching up. sandie


walk along the shore with me and leave your footprints in the sand-
I'm listening, friend...in November I will not be replying so often, but instead slip quietly over to your place for a visit. ;)
