Riposo.

I need a break.

A break from writing.  Even though this last chapter is going to slay me.

A break from my computer.  Even though I love me some twitter and facebook and email and blogs.

A break from my finances.  Even though I’m not sure how to pay the bills.

A break from my own issues.  Even though they beg for attention fairly constantly.

So I’m going to Texas.  To this conference with some Nashville friends.

I’m going to drive through Arkansas and look out the window at a state I’ve never seen before.  I’m going to wear flip flops and write in my journal and raise my hands to worship and eat Mrs. Murphy’s homemade granola and do all manner of things not involving my book or my blog or my bills or my worries.

So I’ll see you later.  Have a great weekend.

    Okay – who else has the name Debs in your world? I want to be “the” Debs please. I’m glad that you’re taking a weekend off. But the nurse in me is worried about your stomach-ache. Have you seen a doctor? I wish that I could have seen you and T. more at Christmas. Now that we are all back in our far-flung places, I’m missing everyone again. Love you – “the” original Debs

    Sounds like fun. Can I go along? I am potty trained, can feed myself, won’t bother anyone…

    I understand needing a brake. I need one too!

    Take care,
    Amy

    Hey Annie…did you read the Proverbs 31 devo for today? It’s all about guarding your heart. Love it when He does that!! 🙂
