Until Next Year, Friends–I leave You With Some enCouragement

Posted By Tammy Hendricksmeyer on Dec 16, 2015 | 2 comments


You need breaks. You need sabbaticals to go and recharge your soul. If God Himself rested on the 7th day, I mean, come on, He’s God and He rested. I’m always in awe of that and also am reminded of how I (we) need to rest, time to time. That’s why I’m taking a blogging break.

 

Plus, I’m re-evaluating my time commitments, you know, because the new year and all. I’ve started working part-time but will share more on that, next month. Regardless, I’m committed to this group right here. I never tire of encouraging us toward the things we’re being called to do.

 

For now it’s time to live life, be with family, wrap under fluffy covers, and celebrate with those we’ve been given. Besides, you, the reader, need a break from your inbox too, right?

 

I’ll be back in January to kick off the new year with you. Until then, I  leave you with some enCouragement.

& Here:

Our authentic lives, frees others. They let themselves off the hook, the one perfect hook they keep trying to hang from. It also lets us off the hook too. When we hide our true lives, because of shame and fear, we try in vain to live before others, instead of before God.” To read the rest on The Risk of of Letting Others Into Our Life at Outside the City Gate, click here.

 

 

Merry (early) Christmas and Happy New Year! See you on the other side.
