Soul Food

There are those profound life changing moments such as your wedding day, the birth of a child, and the death of a loved one regardless of how good or bad the event(s); they help shape who you are today. There are also those life impacting moments; you know, the ones that touch your soul  and change your entire life’s perspective. This weekend at Allume was one of those huge impact weekends. I came home refreshed, but yet, oh so exhausted from all that I had just experienced.

There is still so much of the weekend that I have not even begun to reflect upon. 

I conquered fears. I made new friends. I did what I set out to accomplish; a rejuvenation of my mind, body, and spirit.

I was in the company of 453 women; we laughed. We cried. We dreamed. We shared. We were inspired. We were encouraged. We were poured into. We connected and bonded over the very things that give us; life, joy, and happiness. We were brought to this place together to make a difference. 

For quite sometime now I have been in trenches of baby land; birthing children, nursing babies, diapers, and teaching. It has been a constant pouring into others atmosphere causing me to lose sight of the track God has set out for me and my family. 

As moms we are guilt ridden at the thought of doing something for ourselves. We give. We pour into others. We serve endlessly. We are in a sense becoming dry bones“. (Ezekiel 37: 1-14)

As I am still beginning to process the weekends experiences I leave you with this; we are all uniquely made with a given purpose. What is right for me might very well not be the same for you. Refuel your soul; whether, you have no children, 19 children, are married, or single. Take care of you!
