A change of scenery is good for the soul. Sometimes you just need to get away.
This weekend we (somewhat) spontaneously decided to head to Somerset, Tyler’s hometown, for a quiet weekend with his parents. A quiet, lazy, restful weekend with family was exactly what we needed to fill our hearts & refresh our spirits.
The first half of the weekend we spent with just my mother-in-law, Shelly. It’s rare & special to have so much one on one time with her! I love that!
My father-in-law was busy in Indianapolis, KILLIN the marathon! Seriously though, he qualified for the Boston Marathon with his time… he’s a dedicated, talented runner & his speed blows me away.
We actually made it to church on Sunday! Thank you Lord for that extra hour of sleep & a weekend full of rest. I love going to Grace Baptist when we are home. The church members are incredibly friendly, thoughtful & welcoming. The many hugs, smiles, & waves make us feel missed since we live 2 hours away.
In my book there is nothing better than quality time with the ones you love. We have to do things that keep our hearts happy & our emotional health flourishing. The way I feel emotionally/spiritually completely effects how I feel physically.
Today, I encourage all of you to be intentional with your time. Use it to be productive but also to do things that put a smile on your face. Life is too short to live with a frown!
