I’ve got to do a better job of taking time off. I think God was very specific in his commands to work 6 days out of the week, and rest on the seventh. Unfortunately, like most people I know, I have a tendency to fill my schedule 7 days a week.
Take today, for example. I actually managed to sleep in until quarter of 6. Then I was up for the day, working on various things until time to head to church for our 9:00 am Family Bible Study. Following that was our 10:00 am Morning Service, where we are slowly working through the book of Galatians. I say slowly, because we spent 3 weeks discussing and studying the first 10 verses. Today we finally got past those 10 verses, and had a great conversation about the rest of the first chapter.
After lunch, Kathy and I went down to C-Prompt, where I wanted to work through our business taxes for 2010. Unfortunately, I discovered I have a lot more work to do in Quickbooks before I can really go at the taxes. Since I can log in over the internet to the store, I came home with the paperwork I needed, intending to work on that this afternoon.
However, instead I worked on getting Kathy’s new website set up for her, and then I played around with setting up my new website, experimenting with a couple of different templates. The bottom line is that now it is about 7:30, and it will soon be time for me to think about heading to bed, to get ready for the new week.
I hope eventually I will learn to keep one day a week a lot less scheduled and take a day of REST!.
