I don’t know about you, but often,
when I return home from a
retreat, vacation or work related trip,
my house looks as if the maid was on vacation –
because she was!
Dishes in the sink, pizza boxes piled on the counter,
trash overflowing, and stuff everywhere.
And the children?
Don’t even ask!
Reentry can be tough.
When I go away for a time of refreshment specifically to hear from God,
I am often
convicted inspired to change everything that is wrong with me.
Do you do that?
I crazily believe it’s possible to have a daily hour-long quiet time
in my (as yet to be built) private prayer closet.
