Well, we’re back.
Didn’t we just leave?
Oh, yeah. We did! i guess those long weekends are just never quite long enough. But, this one was long enough to sleep really good in a bed with big, fluffy pillows and warm comforters for two nights.
And just long enough to let us watch “Gran Torino” with Clint Eastwood one night (recommended!) and Best Picture winner “Slumdog Millionaire” the next. (HIGHLY recommended!)
Long enough to have popcorn for dinner two nights :-)
It was long enough for us to grab a late night pizza at our favorite place, Bearno’s.
Long enough to have Ms. Garmin direct our route all over that gorgeous countryside, so we could enjoy even more of it in a shorter time.
The weekend was long enough to let us have a little bit of warmth, followed by a lot of cold and snow. Which gave us just enough beauty, while allowing just enough safety on the roadways. (Unfortunately, i couldn’t take pictures and drive. But it was amazing. Icicles on limestone walls? Stunning! Snow-covered trees? Heavenly! i so wish i was a photographer! i hope my mental camera had plenty of film!)
The wintry weather worried us just enough to get us on the road a little early, missing our favorite “vacation church,” but cleared up just early enough that we were able to catch a service at a never-seen-before church that we enjoyed, too. (Clicking on that link will show you a tiny glimpse of what we saw all weekend!)
We had just enough time to get home before dark, and see the kids before they went to bed.
i guess maybe our weekend away was just long enough, after all…
Thank you, Lord, for a wonderful weekend with My Man. i am abundantly blessed. It is always such a joy to be able to step back from the daily grind and slow down. Look around. Actually notice the surroundings. Be given the time to have an actual conversation, free of constant interruptions.
My prayer now, Father, is that my readers will have the same opportunity to find a few minutes, hours or days to rest. Relax. Enjoy the beauty surrounding us that You created, God. To see You, in all Your Glory, and praise You.
i pray that they will be able to spend that much needed quality time with their spouse, and reconnect as a couple. i pray that they take the time to enjoy being together.
Thank you, Lord, for knowing just what we need, when we need it. Thank you, Lord, for knowing exactly when we’ve had just enough…Amen.
