How To Refresh and Power-up For Life

What lies around the next curve on the road of life?

There may be joy, sorrow or mountainous challenges and it's vital to be recharged and prepared.

Hubby and I love traveling across America, 
But at least once a month
We take a day trip--
Trekking through nature,
Disconnected from noise and technology,
While exploring remote back country.

Charged with a sense of adventure and expectancy,
We never know what lies beyond the next curve.
It may be breathtaking scenery,
Wild animals unaware humans are near or
Wash-outs that could throw our car off the mountain--
And that almost happened.
We've spent many hours,
Hundreds of miles and
Exciting moments--
Exploring remote regions,
With a blank book and pen,
 Jotting fresh new ideas that come to mind.

Sometimes we take motivational books along such as:
  • Make Today Count - John C. Maxwell
  • First Things First - Stephen Covey
  • Thinking For A Change - John C. Maxwell
  • Cure For the Common Life - Max Lucado 
and many more...
Amidst majestic splendor and solitude,
We unwind, listen and discover fresh new thoughts.
 Later we return home recharged and
Exhilarated with magical memories,
Ready to hop back on the road of life to
Love and 
While facing challenges,
Implementing fresh ideas and
Reaching new goals and dreams.

"You are never too old to set another goal
Or dream a new dream."
--C.S. Lewis
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.


You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

Like cleaning the lens of glasses,
Time spent amidst solitude and
God’s majestic creation
Will provide a clearer perspective for all of life. 
“Every so often I need out—away from all these people I love most in the world—in order to regain a sense of proportion.
My special place is a small brook in a green glade, a circle of quiet from which there is no visible sign of human beings… "
--Madeleine L’Engle,
A Circle of Quiet 

 Where do you refresh 
For life?

I invite you to 
Take time away amidst quiet,
And power-up.
Amazing things can happen... 

"In quietness is your strength..."
