Freely and Lightly!

>> Saturday, July 5, 2008

I am beginning to think about my trip. Oh, I know, that's very funny. Actually, I've been thinking of it for a very long time! Umm... now I'm at the stage where I'm actually deciding what to take with me in my carry-on. I won't check a bag. I want to travel light.

Any ideas? I'm traveling on Tuesday, then I have Wednesday - Monday, then traveling early on Tuesday again. I was thinking of just taking two pairs of capris jeans and enough blouses/shirts for every day. I'll wear my tennis shoes there and pack flip-flops so it will be lighter.

I'm also trying to decide if I should stick my laptop in my carry-on. I have a very long day traveling on Tuesday. A bus ride to Chicago to the airport and then a loooong wait for the plane. Hmmm? What do you all think? I suppose I can get it out of my carry-on if I decide I want it but don't want to do that on the plane. Either it stays with me or it stays in carry-on.

Anyone have any travel tips they would like to share? I would love to hear them.

I don't want to be loaded down with stuff while I'm traveling. The same thing goes with life. The more I let things work on me and through me without me letting them go, the heavier my burden becomes.

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly." (Matthew 11:29-30, The Message)

I'm ready to live freely and lightly. If you're following along behind me, don't trip over my stuff as I cast it off! Watch me walk with "unforced rhythms of grace." Just watch!
