Rest On The Journey ~ Find Time For Tea

We boarded a plane.

8 hours later we landed in Paris.


When we got to our room, responsibility and worry slipped with our bags from our shoulders as we unpacked more than just our luggage that first night.

Over the course of the next few days we took in the sights, but more than that, we allowed ourselves to remain present instead of two steps ahead. Planning only a few hours at a time, when a majority of our life is spent mapping out years, of charting our course.

We are driven, my husband and I. We believe in the power of hard work, of dedication, and direction. And now – we are learning the art of rest.

Of watching sun thrown shadows move across statues.

Of tossing a thousand wishes into a fountain....

For the Rest of the story, follow me HERE to my friend Kimberly's space Find Time For Tea? 

Kimberly was one of the first places I landed when I ventured into this virtual world a year ago and she gives you a chance to do just as her tagline suggests: Rest. Reflect. Refill.  Join us on her great 31 day series on the Journey.
