Four Ways to Hang On When You Want to Let Go | Jennifer Rothschild 

4 Ways to Hang On By Jennifer Rothschild.

Let’s face it. We often don’t have the luxury of just saying, “Hey, everybody.  I’m tired and about to lose it so I am just going to step away from all my responsibilities, relationships, and roles for a week so I can rest.”

At least that doesn’t happen in my world.  How about yours?

I have been at the end of my rope recently and every cell in my body and every neuron in my brain is screaming for rest, retreat, and respite.  And, because I, like you, can’t just put on the brakes and drop everything all at once, the Lord is showing me how to hold on, stay strong, and rest.  Or shall I write, R-E-S-T!  You knew an acronym was coming…didn’t you?


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

Please Comment. I don't care how long or how short. I want to hear from you.
