Training Weekend...


I am so appreciative for my
"training weekends!"
From time to time I am allowed
a day (or two) to Regroup, Refresh, and Retain all
that is being taught me.
Life gets so busy and
schedules can be so demanding.
Taking time out for a little
"R and R... and R"
is so very important to our well being.

The photo seen in this post
was created using a photo of the fireplace
where I am staying for my training.
It's so cold outside and
near the fire is where I am finding myself
for much of my focus time.
I couldn't help but think of my study of
1 Peter and how we are being
"refined" as we wait.
As I nestle by this fire, I find myself
getting a bit more warm than I like.
After making some adjustments,
I then find myself in need of
drawing closer to the fire again.
How about that...
no one really enjoys being
"refined"
but then again, when we understand
what is best for us and
trust the Elements,
we find ourselves with a
DESIRE to be REFINED.


Thank you for visiting today...
it was nice to see you.
I hope you have a creative day!
