My Plans for Spiritual Refreshment

I am so grateful to my church for generously giving me a 30 day sabbatical. I plan to use this as a time of spiritual refreshment and renewal. I will NOT be blogging during my sabbatical. If you are a regular visitor to my blog — first, let me say THANK YOU for reading my stuff — and please stay tuned. I will resume my regular blogging scehdule the week of August 18th.

30-Day Sabbatical Plan

  • Week one in California, hiking in Yosemite National Park, Sequoia National Park, and hitting the beach in Monterey, CA.
  • Week two in the mountains surrounding Santa Fe, New Mexico, hiking, exploring, and enjoying God’s handiwork.
  • Week three on the Gulf Coast in Rockport, Texas, fishing and walking along the coast.
  • Week four in Houston, Texas, spending time with my Mom, watching her game shows, Hallmark Channel, and her beloved Astros! (I’ll also get some alone time on the beach in Galveston).

It should go without saying that there will be plenty of reading — mostly catching up on my literary fiction reading list and some genre fiction (spy novels!), as well as some Christian devotionals I’ve been wanting to dig into.


Thanks to all my church family, friends, and readers!


Blessings — and I’ll see you in 30 days!
