Day off.  After today, I may take a day off from blogging here and there over the next week. We have much going on and I may not have access to do so.

Every one needs a day off on occasion. I told my kids it is called a MENTAL HEALTH DAY.  When they were growing up, each semester of school if they did not have too many absences, they were allowed a Mental Health Day each semester and they loved it. They never abused missing school and it was good for them to feel like they had control. Only rule was they could not take it to avoid a test. 

Sometimes mental health days provide the extra rest our body needs from the stress and expectations we have daily.  What ever the reason, God is present in every moment as you heal and relax. It is a good time to spend reflecting and trusting Him to provide direction as you go calmly through the day with confidence of recharging your batteries for a better rested tomorrow.  His grace is present there with you.

Give thanks for the day off and all the new opportunities and thoughts that will come from this gift of rest. May the day sustain and uplift you that the return to life will be one filled with His power.

Mom if you are reading this morning...thank you. Thank you for your love and light that have filled my life for the past years.  I celebrate this birthday knowing you have walked beside me through out my life, always in constant vigil with your support and wisdom. You are the best.  I love you very much.

"From his fullness we have all received,  grace upon grace." John 1:16
