Time Out

Yesterday I locked myself out of the house. 

We still have a Supra box on the door. As I waited for the real estate agent to come rescue me, I realized it was the first time I’ve had to sit still in weeks.

The impending move, the end of school, the women of Monsanto post, the closing on our house… It’s high time for a time out.

Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, Who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt,because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. James 1:4-6 NIV

What do you do for a “time out?”

  1. As you know, Aimee, I’m the connoisseur of time outs over at Margarita Moments & Other Escapes. :) Sorry you were locked out, but happy you had a moment to reflect on life and relax a bit.

    My life has been especially hectic these past number of months, with my husband’s on-going health issues, son’s behavior concerns (autistic teen), and trying to juggle two jobs–the day job and writing. It’s been difficult to take my own blog advice, but I try very hard to take time for myself each day, even if it’s only four minutes of a favorite song while I sip a favorite beverage.

    Have a wonderful week! God bless. :)

  2. Don’t ya love it when God puts a SCREECHING halt to your life? In that moment you panic… then possibly cry… then surrender… I hope you were able to breath and take it in. Praying for you Aimee!! :)
