winsome \WIN-suhm\, adjective:1. Cheerful; merry; gay; light-hearted.2. Causing joy or pleasure; agreeable; pleasant.
I have always loved this word. Today on my dictionary word of the day, this word appeared.
I am looking for a few winsome days.
I returned today from several days in Switzerland. I was one of a few women facilitating at a women's conference. I didn't blog after the first day of arrival - the days were too filled. Filled with more than just facilitating/learning (sometimes the facilitators learn more during facilitation then they ever expected - this was one of those times). They were filled with learning, growing, relationship building with women ministering in Croatia, Macedonia, Bosnia... the countries represented! WOW! They were filled with getting to know a few women really well. They were filled with amazing new friendships and new partnerships.
So, Saturday I fly to England. I fly to seek a few winsome days, a few introspective days, a few days of silence, of setting goals for the future, of quiet talks with new friends.
Interesting that I am going to a country that speaks my mother tongue and I am called to use most of the days in silence, observing the winsome days with Him as my companion. He does have a sense of humor!
