If I’m Being Honest…

… I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed lately. All the traveling, having people in town almost constantly, needing to raise more money in this crap economy, a huge to do list, decisions requiring more wisdom than I have….

So today I’m getting out of Dodge. For the past ten years in Virginia Beach, I’ve taken one day a month as a “personal retreat day” where I get alone with God and spend the day focusing on and talking to Him. We’ve been in Vegas for three months and so far I’ve done, wait, let me count, yeah, none of those. And I wonder if that’s part of the reason I’m feeling overwhelmed.

So I’m getting in my car this morning, driving away from stuff and I’m asking you to pray that I connect deeply with God.

And, by the way, do you have any “personal retreat days” (or half-days) built into your calendar? ‘Cause I’m guessing you need them too.
