On Holidays.........It's Official!!

This morning when I woke up I felt a peace I haven't experienced in a long time.  It was the peace you feel when you wake up in your own bed in your own house but realize something is significantly, thrillingly different than the day before.

For me the difference is that my husband is on holidays for a whole month! The church phone line into our house is unplugged, there is nothing that has to be done to a deadline today or tomorrow or the next day.  WOW!  How can life feel so different when nothing has outwardly changed?

Oh there are things to be done: lawn to be mowed, meals to prepare, laundry, the usual daily tasks. But the big difference is knowing we can get to them when we get to them with no stress or racing madly about.

Of course my husband, bless his fat pastoral heart, is going to take a half day to make some pastoral phone calls and attend to some administrative duties he doesn't want getting out of control during his holiday.  And of course those things will take more than half a day, and of course there is always something that comes up that is work related before you can get the car packed up and get out of town, something that delays the whole trip, and........

Oh peeeeaaaace...........come baaaaaaack..........
