i want to go to there.

i want to go to there.

i would love to just go to someplace tropical
turn off the cell phones, and leave them off
not even look at a computer
walk on the beach with my love
stick my toes in the sand

and escape.

{photos taken last summer on vacation in florida}

I'm feeling very overwhelmed lately {and so is huband.} We are both thoroughly looking forward to August...when he has graduated, and we get a vacation! In the meantime, I'm trying to enjoy the here and now, have a good attitude and positive outlook, and resist stress if at all possible {although that is super hard for me...Jesus is helping me with that.}

These scriptures have always been encouraging to me in times like this:

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." - Matthew 11:28

"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." - Isaiah 40:29-31

What brings you encouragement when you're weary?


  1. i wanna go too.

    hope you are able to be less overwhelmed. stress stinks.

  2. A tropical vacation sounds perfect right about now--hang on til august, it's so close!

    when i'm feeling overwhelmed (which seems to be all the time these days!) I snuggle with my kitties. their unconditional love brings me such peace :)
