Vacation, Had To Get Away

It’s time.

I am taking this week off (well , as much as any momma can take a week off).

My boys and I will be traveling, my husband and I will be chillin’, some friends and I will be retreating, and more than anything else, I will be seeking the peace and comfort that comes only from time to hear myself think, breathe deeply and pray.

My plan for Not The Former Things this week is to catch us all up a bit, and introduce you to a friend. We have grown so much in such a short period of time, I am going to use this week to re-post a few of the most read posts from this year.

Also, on Wednesday, I am pleased to be hosting a new guest blogger that I know you will identify with and enjoy. I figure a new, fresh perspective is good for all our hearts, and she is exactly that.

I haven’t taken a blog break yet, mostly because I kinda love it. This will be my first, and although I will not be writing this week, I know I will miss you guys! I will be thinking of y’all and praying for you. I have set an alarm for everyday at 11:00 AM on my phone. When it goes off, I promise to pray for you, for your families, for your struggles and for your triumphs. And mostly, I will pray for your momma’s hearts.

I hope you have a wonderful week. A week filled with children doing amazing things. A week filled with sweet moments and a week filled with crazy ones. A week of encouragement. A week of grace. A week filled with love.

I will be praying for you, Momma. May God bless you and keep you.

Until next week…

Love, Shawna
