Journal It: Your Perfectly Planned Day


As a person who loves to plan, one of my favorite activities happens to be…um, yeah, well, of course- planning! If you have followed me for any length of time you might know this already.

As a Personal Trainer for many years, one of the exercises mandatory for my clients was planning their ideal day, so we could target realistic goals and identify potential stumbling blocks.

“Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.”  Jesus

Treat yourself to A Retreat! {Jumping Tandem: The Retreat)

What comes to your mind when I say the word “retreat”?
Well,what comes to my mind is horizon. 
As in new.
New horizon.
I found out that some of the sweetest, most dedicated in His grace bloggers
 I know in this Blogosphere are coming together and offering 
a really great opportunity for discovering new horizons.
Or maybe helping to re-discover forgotten ones. 
It is to be held in Ashland, Nebraska. April 19-21.
Deidre Riggs has had it on her heart for awhile apparently and how inspiring to us 
who dream in color: she is making it happen!
I heard it first from Michelle Derusha and had to pass along 
this bit of wonderful to you.
Because news travels fast in this crazy, beautiful Blogosphere but let’s face it,
some news is just too good not to share right away!
I wonder if it’s not your time to be refreshed in “your big, amazing, ridiculous dream”.
Could it be your time to treat yourself to this retreat?

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
