Psalm 32:7: You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble, and surround me with songs of deliverance.
Do songs of deliverance ring your ears? What does this sound like?
After a couple of very busy years for myself and quite a few more for my hubby we are off in just a few days, heading on our big sabbatical trip...oh to be delivered with some rest and special family time ahead.
I have been reminiscing this week about our last sabbatical RV trip taken in 2006 up the East coast. I cherish these memories with my boys, who were just 3 and 5 years old then.
What an adventure! There was time for play and time for rest.

I am taking this down time to focus on my family and am asking God to make clear the direction of my path. I am sensing a change on the horizon for several reasons.
Some things have come up recently for me that have caused me to take pause and re-evaluate my path- yes this Princess Path…that is why I am sharing it here. Really, this is not a bad thing.
Do you take time to pause and evaluate your path?
I so love this tidbit of info I got while listening to special guest, Laurie Beth Jones on Girlfriendit Radio. You can listen here. Laurie Beth shared 3 questions to ask ourselves in order to assess if we are on the path that God has for us…oh these were just nuggets for me:
1 – Am I doing work that honors God?
2 – Am I doing work that honors me?
3 – Am I making a living doing this work?
I am so thankful for these timely questions as I assess this path that I am on and what an opportunity for me to rest on this path and process through these questions?
Such sweet words penned by David in Psalm 32 and I feel my body sink deeper into the cushions of my sofa as I absorb them deep within my heart. Life is surely not perfect, but I am rejoicing in the Lord and glad to be on this path.
A path full of joy and happiness amidst life’s uncertainty.
Thankful for this path...
