For the women at the LIFT Summer Refresher, JUST PRESS PAUSE, who requested the poem I shared with them, here it is:
What Do You Need? (It may be different than what your friend needs.)
Some of us need to stop thinking and do,
while others need to stop doing and think.
Some need to stop asking and give, though
others need to cease giving and ask.
Some of us need to stop crying and smile,
yet others need to stop smiling and cry.
Some need to stop confronting and give in,
while others need to quit compromising and confront.
Some of us need to stop waiting and run,
Though others need to stop running and wait.
Some need to practice discipline and organize, yet others need to cease
structuring themselves into a box and relax.
God is big enough to help us all. What do you need?
Come on over to my new site/blog and tell me what you think?
LIFT’s Summer Refresher: JUST PRESS PAUSE Friday August 2, 2013
Need a Little Break?
I want to personally invite you to a Mini-Retreat for Women’s Ministry Leaders, Teams and Volunteers where I’ll be sharing on Friday, August 2. I’ve noticed that many of us (and I’m including myself!) are experiencing “compassion fatigue” these days.
Are you craving relief — as well as some practical ways to avoid the heaviness of “compassion fatigue”? If so, please join us as we accept Jesus’ offer to “Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matt. 11:28-30 MSG

Message from the LIFT Director about JUST PRESS PAUSE
Sometimes we carry burdens we were never meant to carry. That’s why I’m thrilled to have Joan C. Webb come for our August Summer Refresher event title Just Press Pause. As Joan so aptly states:
“As dedicated, gifted, and caring Christian women we try hard to assure that our relationships, goals, faith, and ministries are “just right”-and it’s so disappointing when they aren’t. There is so much to do to further God’s Kingdom work and we want to join Him. So we try harder and just get bone-tired. Sometimes that deep weariness is from carrying burdens that aren’t ours to carry. If you’re like me, you long to know what you can do to release yourself from that heavy weight. Let’s come “Just Press Pause” to relax with Christ and one another, and trade our exhausting expectations for imperfect joy.”
I can’t wait to see you there!
Smiling in Christ,
Director of LIFT (Leaders in Fellowship Together “equipping & encouraging leaders in Women’s Ministry”)
