Ever feel boxed in?
Just want to stretch above the rut?
Or soar aloft, just for a little while?

Well, I'm going to!
I'm leaving this week to see my grand kids, daughter-in-love and son (he's a bit crazy like me.) Yippee!
Look at'em hunting Easter eggs. Isn't that just the cutest?

This week how will you stretch, soar or break out? Let me know-hey, take this as a challenge! Come on, you can do it!

"Moreover, I will give you a new heart, and put a new spirit within you." Ezekiel 36:26

I love how the Lord has renewed my spirit with this fun trip! Secret is, He can do that anywhere, anytime. I just need to be more observant.

(After Tuesday I won't be on, until next week.) But leave me a comment about your challenge/accomplishment that you did this week.

Have a wonderful time!

I'm going to see a boy stretch his wings!

Blessings on your trip, Karen.

Connie Arnold said...

How fun! Have a good time with family, Karen! This past week I was challenged with a lot of extra work and going to an event I wasn't sure I wanted to. Everything got done, and there's a good sense of accomplishment plus I made a special new friend.

Enjoy being with your loved ones!

Does "house-stuff" count as stretching? That's my priority this week. Closets, cupboards, reorganizing.

Praying for a safe and memorable trip for you*

Have a nice break Karen. Our accomplishment this week is our writing group's first entry in a writing competition. Reluctance by all has been overcome and we are now enthusiastic! - Dave

Karen said...

Kathy and Linda, thanks, I sure plan to! :)

Laura, you have great fun, too!!

Connie, I think that's great that you went anyway, and came away with a blessing. Cool!

Oh, yes, Johnnie, house stuff DOES count in my book!

Dave, that is exciting about your writing group. Keep it up! It's lots of fun and learning, too. Yay!

Enjoy your trip! I will try to soar this week...

Deb said...

Hope you have fun with your family!

My first challenge this week is to run a total of nine miles (I haven't run in about six months).

Three down...six to go.

My second challenge this week is to write for fifteen minutes each day.

Not there yet.

But working on it.

Sweet dreams.

What a beautiful family, Karen! Have fun, fun, fun with them!

My accomplishment this week? I officially passed the half-way mark of my book, by God's grace!

Enjoy your week, my friend!

Glad to hear you were able to spend time with family.
