Quieting my heart ...

I'll be taking at least the rest of the week off from my blog - look forward to being back Monday, Lord willing. I'm not quitting - just taking a short rest this week. Thanks!

Monica

Glad you're taking a little break. I've sensed a weariness in your posts the last few weeks. I hope you will find some rest and refreshment through your time away.

We'll be here when you get back. :-)

Sounds like a good thing to do!

I have a self planned blogging break myself because I think it's occasionally necessary! And GOOD!

I like your title "Quieting my heart..." It reminds me of my time as a missionary in the Netherlands when I would "quiet my heart" every morning by a huge Dutch picture window and listen for God's voice as I read my Bible, listened to music, and prayed. One song that I always enjoyed to quiet my heart with was Bryan Duncan's "When I Turn to You." Though I'm not normally a Bryan Duncan-style fan, this song really ministered to my heart and helped me quiet my heart to listen for God's voice. Here's a link to the Maranatha Singers' version of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lU5XiYTx7AM

Enjoy your break... and rest in the Lord.

Sorry, I must enter a correction from my comment: The song "When I Turn to You" on the YouTube link is sung by the Heritage Singers.

Enjoy your rest! I'm back at blogging after quite a long rest. We need it sometimes...

Heather said...

Enjoy the time away. I have enjoyed reading your blog for refreshment myself, spiritually. Thank you for the inspiring myself and others.

We all need to take a break now and then. Sometimes getting away from the internet can help us re-focus - and with your darling littles, I am sure keeping all those balls in the air can be tiring! I hope your break brings you peace ;)
