Life is busy for moms!!
Sometimes you just need to get away from all the distractions and quiet your mind.
Recently we were at our cabin in Northern Michigan for a long weekend. I love it there because it is so peaceful and quiet. We have no internet, our phones have very limited service, and the tv only gets a couple local channels.
I am able to turn of the distractions and "noise" of everyday life. It is a slower pace and I am able to quiet my mind and connect with God.
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13
My favorite thing is to sit outside on the porch in the morning with a cup of coffee and my devotions. I always feel closer to God when I am surrounded by the beauty He created…the birds singing, the frogs croaking, and the sun coming up over the water.
At time like this I feel like it is just God and I!
I can talk to him and share what is on my heart. I had a lot on my mind this particular weekend and I had some big decisions to make about taking on more hours at my family's business. It was so good to get away and have time to really think and pray about it.
As I was sitting on the porch I could hear the tire swing was calling my name! I felt like a kid again – so carefree just swinging out over the water!
My daughter saw me swinging and came out to join me (or laugh at me). I told her you are never too old to swing!
How about you? Do you have a special place that you feel closest to God? Please share below!
