From Moments to Stories

If I don’t fully live the moments I won’t have the stories….

I’ve just sent off my youngest to a gap.year program at Oxford and I am spent.

So– I’m taking a break. I realize that I’m tired and need to rest. It’s that simple. I’ll be taking a blogging break until after Labor Day. Robynn will still be bringing you an amazing post on Friday – you won’t want to miss it as its on loneliness.

I’m going to stop and live these moments, for moments give birth to stories and stories are vital to our lives.
So thank you — for reading, encouraging, commenting and emailing. I look forward to reconnecting next week.

And may you live your moments and create your stories!

  1. “He gives power to the tired and worn out, and strength to the weak.” Is.40:29 TLB

    “Come uinto me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” Matt. 11:28 NIV

    Marilyn, these words are truth.


  2. Smart woman, my dear friend!! Despite pervasive cultural pressure to fill the moment, move faster, do more . . . so often, at least for me, everything from my faith, to my ability to care for family and other loved ones, to my work and other commitments are all strengthened when I seek rest and renewal. A major life passage such as sending one’s youngest out into the world deserves special honor and the time to truly feel all that it signifies. Much love to you.
