I asked some friends today how they recharge; what they do when they need a rest stop; where they find an oasis.
Here's what I got:
my bed with cool crisp sheets, Colorado, a massage and starbucks, music, a pedicure, a nap, time spent laughing with family/friends, a bowl of cereal and the tv remote, a big bubble bath with lavender chamomile candles and a good movie, a pot of coffee, sitting on the bank of a creek with my feet in the water.
Love those responses...don't I have great friends?
I don't know about you, but right about now, in the "dog days of summer", recharging sounds pretty good! That's why I'm looking forward to the Kidmin Conference.
I went to Kidmin last year, and was so pleased to find that this conference was designed to feed my soul, tickle my funny bone and...recharge my batteries. Kidmin is more than just a few days to stuff your head with ideas and gizmos and plans and dreams. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of time for the head-stuffing, etc. but it's way more...it's a time to slow down, to listen to God's voice, and to experience the strength in standing together as God's family.
If you're a part of Children's Ministry in any capacity at your church, I hope you can join us there! reCHARGE guaranteed!
