Paul told the Galatians, “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up” (6:9). I’m not giving up—but I am taking a break! I’ve written a Bible study for next year. I just finished the Advent book for the Christmas holiday. I need to edit my book so it can be reissued. But, I’m tired. I need a workcation.
Hobby Lobby is stocking their shelves with pumpkins! It is time to enjoy some summertime downtime before the fall arrives. So, this is my “see-you-soon” blog. I’m going to take a couple of weeks and enjoy watching the grass grow. When I get back to work, I expect to have a tan, a smile, and a new grandbaby! More on that later. . .
Life is good, but we all need to stop for a bit and remind ourselves of that fact. We are blessed and happy, but we work a little too much. It is hard to take a break when the news and the needs don’t. There isn’t a day that people don’t need to consider God’s word and apply it to our culture. There isn’t a day someone doesn’t need something. But God is on his throne today and he will still be on his throne when I get back to work.
They call these the “dog days of summer”, so I’m going to eat what someone else fixes for me, nap when I feel like napping, and do whatever else I feel like doing. I might even bark at anyone who knocks on my door.
I hope you all enjoy the next couple of weeks too. It is hot, the days are long, but the fall season is coming. We will be putting out pumpkins before we know it! (Hobby Lobby has some nice ones.) Now, time to make some iced tea and find a good book!
And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest” (Exodus 33:14).
