Even loudmouths get the blues

To the observer of my life, things look pretty wonderful!

 And to be honest, so much of it is...we just spent the last few days "detoxing from technology"
 (minus my phone which took all these pics, but that's all it did! Oh and our Kindles that we read on, I'm keepin' it real.)
and spending some relaxing family time together, no plans, no agenda. 
Just the sound of the river and our talking.
(and our dogs barking at every dog that passed)
Silly moments are always necessary

early morning and we're smiling, that's the life!
a rare request from Roo to snuggle? I'm in heaven!
I am blessed, I believe that, I know that, I'm thankful every day for that.


I'm in a season right now.

I feel something big....something wonderful and beautiful coming my way.
 I really do.

But right now, I just want to unplug, I don't want to have deep conversations, I don't want to debate opinions, I don't want to show my heart, I don't want to read anything that hurts, I don't want to say anything that could hurt.

 I just want to give my heart a break. If that makes sense. 
(Don't wanna break your heart, wanna give your heart a break! know you were all thinking it!)

So I think I will.

I'll text as needed, I'll call or message as needed.

But I HAVE to remove myself from what I am taking internally that is hurting.

The thing is, I gotta step back. Strengthen MY heart, who I AM, and not feel worthless so easily, it's just ridiculous how quickly the enemy can jump in and twist my thoughts around. 
I need to remember how He sees me, and be just that.

 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 
2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, 
that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

Romans 12:1-8
(full chapter here)

Until I plug in again!
 Lots of love, rainbows and silliness.
