Vacation for the Soul By Brenda Drake

              Well my friends I just got back from vacation.  We attended a fun filled, heart touching, event packed destination wedding.   Then an additional time of our six different family units meeting and living together to spend time with those we love.  It is a special occasion provided and set aside because we do not get to enjoy  each other through out the year.  We have many  different ages and  life styles, committed to make new memories.  Memories were indeed made; late nights, games, laughter, and partying.  We  planned some events where it was difficult to get everyone together, ready, and on time but we always made it at the right time.  I love our family times together.  But I am sure all will agree we still need a vacation for the soul.


Wide open space… a vacation for the mind.
Clear as far ahead as you can see and all troubles left behind;
Like a day in the sun with a gentle breeze here and there.
Basking in Love’s light with the aroma of  tenderness that proves He cares.
A time where the heart is opened and the minds activity’s at rest,
Reveling in the realization of God’s presence and that you are His.
Lovely comforting moments of a life fulfilled,
Comforted by the sweet assurance you are in His will
Like the flutter of the wings of the butterfly,
Little bubbles of joy rise up inside.
Oh the sweetness of the quiet time of prayer.
When you know that you know your God cares.
Then like any time of vacation its time to go to work again.
Setting the heart and mind in motion to live your life for Him.
Lifting up another’s hurts, pains and needs.
Speaking out the truth for others to receive.
Reaching out and touching the one that does not know,
The great provision of prayer’s vacation for the soul.

 Psalms 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.

 Matthew 11:28
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
