«Me» Time

I'm back (am I really??? I've been saying this on my latest posts but then I spend another long period of time without posting).
Summer is almost coming to an end and many things have happened in the last weeks, but I feel too lazy to write about them. Well, nothing extrardinary happened! Just normal life, whatever 'normal' means. But I so much need «me» time. I'm feeling tired of always being there for everyone. Yes, I know this is not a vey Christian thought and don't misunderstand me, I still want to be like that, but I need time for me. No, I don't want to do anything different. I just need to spend more time with God and not so much time with people. I need to rearrange my routines because I used to have that quiet Me&God Time in the morning but lately I haven't been able to get up early enough and many times the day comes to an end and I haven't had that time because I was so busy doing things and spending time with people. I need (we all do) that time daily but I'm also thinking about doing something else starting next year: a mini-vacation, just by myself, just to rest, read and speak with God.

Wellcome back Lara:)
I'm as you: need time with God. A lot of people aroud me have a lot of problems and I ask God to give me straith to carry on. But I only have holidays next month therefore I am very tired.
So all my relation with God (pray, read and most of all precious time with Him - because I am with proofs in my life where I need to listen very carefully His Voice) is not beeing peacefull.
I think I am not beeing selfish and I understand you very well...
Well, I will wait for my holidays to have that quiet me&God!

Good to see you post whenever you do post, so don't be hard on yourself, just post when the urge is there.

I find that I need to set aside certain times to be with God, like Monday evenings with prayer group and Mass, then in the evening with Bible reading. Of course there is prayer during every day, but you DO need that 'special' time as well.

blessings and hugs,

The same thing happens to me, I'll do several posts then nothing for a long time. Life just happens and blogging comes second. I'm doing some catching up reading today.
