A Weekend to Decompress

Sometimes God gives me a weekend to just be refreshed. They are weekends of being able to relax and enjoy time with friends. They are weekends to decompress from the concerns of ministry and life with chronic illness. This past weekend was one of those times.

Saturday evening I enjoyed time with friends from various countries, a young couple from Brazil, a young couple from Mexico, and a young couple of an American husband and wife from Venezuela. All six of them are young professionals. We shared stories about travel and shared a lot of laughter. We ate Arepas a food from Venezuela. The mother of the young woman from Venezuela is visiting and she made the Arepas for us. They were so delicious.

Sunday afternoon my Life Group from church had lunch at a member’s home in the country. Again it was a time of laughter as we shared stories. The food was typical of an American gathering, burgers, beans, salads. I even got some homemade ice cream. πŸ™‚

It was a blessing to unwind with friends and share laughter. Refreshed and ready to go πŸ™‚

Thank you for reading. God Bless.
