As of today, I am on vacation. I will be away with my family for 10 days. Not long but long enough for some much needed rest. We are not doing anything exotic. What we are doing is giving ourselves what my mom would call: hyacinths for the soul. God would call it Sabbath.
We live in a world that is moving at light speed. Changes happen faster than we can wrap our minds around them. Taking time away is important. It doesn’t have to be a vacation of a lifetime…although I hope everyone gets at least one of those. Time away can be as simple as a day at the beach, a walk in the woods, or laying in a hammock with a good book. Time away or Sabbath is anything that allows our minds and bodies to rest…to take a break from your typical and daily activities.
So for today as we are traveling down the road…my prayer for everyone is you can find a way to take some time away so you can come back refreshed.
