Hitting the “Pause” Button

This year I have had to say good-bye to two amazing people in my life. They were the core of who I am. Within 9 months I have lost both my Mom and my Dad.

Because 2014 has been such an emotional roller coaster, I am taking a mental vacation. All of this has left me emotionally drained and creatively bankrupt, so the remainder of 2014 will be spent with some intense and intimate time with Lord.

So with a heart felt “Merry Thanksgiving” and “Happy Christmas” I wish you all the best during this holiday season. I can not wait to meet back up with everyone in 2015 to share all that Father is going to download during this intentional season spent with Him.

See you next year!

Please feel free to look through some of the archived posts until I return. Much love and blessings to all who have stuck with me through this process of building “StayingStacy”!
