Back from vacation. Very good time with Michelle on a tropical island. Perfect weather, beautiful rainforests, cool snorkeling, killer restaurants, art galleries, good books (o.k., I brought those myself). I really needed to get away from here – partially to clear my head, and partially to gain perspective on what needs to stay in my head.

Michelle told me that it took me a few days to wind down and really get into vacation mode – which I agree with, even though I felt good about having unplugged from home pretty quickly. I did get a lot of reading in – finished the three books I was working on, and dabbled in a couple of others.

Usually when I go on a vacation, I go with an empty notebook, wanting to fill it up with thoughts and ideas and dreams and goals and words from God. I didn’t do that this time. I think I didn’t trust myself enough to do that – I am too anxious for direction and words from God right now, and I didn’t want to manufacture something in my own world and attribute it to God. I just needed to relax. It worked. I really feel like I’m in a better position now to listen to God and let him direct me, so I will be scheduling more intentional time with the Father as I get back into the swing of things.

I’ll write more about vacation later.
