As the cold weather pushes us increasingly indoors, I was just enjoying the remembrance of Labor Day breakfast outdoors at my sister’s cottage!
It was a wonderful Sunday morning meeting today…one of those days where you just love every little teeny tiny detail of everything!
Having had a lot of stress in my past, I’ve learned to make little safe places to retreat to in my mind when the stress gets too heavy. Most people call it day dreaming I guess.
One of my favorite visualizations is to picture going to our yearly convention on an Iowa farm. The upstairs of the barn is turned into a slumber party of sorts for women! I’m not exactly sure what the men’s quarters looks like! This last August, I slept next to the slanty wall and loved propping my legs up against it to relax between meetings.
It was a little hard to do a proper bed making here though!
Mostly we spend four days hearing spirit inspired messages from the Bible, but we also eat our meals together and sleep either in transformed barns, tents or campers. I love the way rustic becomes comfortable, and how everyone fits and works together and reliving it all in my mind the rest of the year is such a pleasant retreat!
