This is becoming a habit – taking a day off.
More for sanity and rest than anything else. I spent a 14 hour day yesterday – all good and well. But by the end of the day I was tired. Good tired, but still tired.
So, I set up today to be an actual day off. No stepping into the office to perform church duties.
Instead, I continued on an adventure to fulfil the last will and testament of a friend. I checked out a project we have been working on as a church. I had an extended conversation with a pastor friend. I watched a movie we had borrowed from someone else. I trimmed down a door so it closed well. I joined my wife in delivering a meal. I walked across the road to help a new neighbour unpack a few things.
In all, this was a good day. Although some of the activities were church related, I did not feel at all constrained to do “the work of the ministry”. What fun! May more days of rest be just that!
