Darla is Trapped.

Darla (my Daewoo Leganza...I refuse to offend her by telling her age or mileage) is trapped in a foot of snow on a private drive as I have been at the Thompson household since Monday night. She cannot go anywhere, and if she could, it would be anywhere I want her to be, such as the local ditch or heaven forbid the two-foot deep lake by the Thompsons' property.

So she sits.

and I hope (not tryin' to be greedy here, folks) that we have snow days until she has a bit more get-up-and-go.

But honestly, she and I are both loving the break--being off the road, in one place for more than five or ten minutes, and don't forget the added bonus of NO GUILT because I legitimately CANNOT go anywhere.

It's nice....Real real nice.

Thankful to a God who sees our upcoming breaking points and gives us a much-needed moment. or several.

Just last week I told Him I couldn't continue at this speed anymore.

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

How has He given you rest lately?

I LOVE snow days too! Get a good book, movie, or music, and enjoy it. In my case its a sled and hot chocolate and hours of UNO. God is so good. Praying for your retreat...hope it thaws out first:)
