My Day Off

So seriously, I basically took the day off…from life today. I mean I plopped my butt down on the mower and cut the grass and weed eated (is that how you say that?) and cleaned up a bit but other than that I took the day off. I gave you a cool video post promoting Starbuck’s coffee giveaway and I hung out on some of your blogs this evening but otherwise, I lounged…nearly all day.

Here’s why I say this: time off is needed! REST is important. Otherwise we keep going and going and going and going. I’m the biggest offender! I took my wife and kids, and my youth group, and a band and led worship for a Youth Retreat this Summer. That was dumb. I was not a great person to be around at the end of that week. And I do stuff like that all the time! We should be conscious and aware of how we spend our time and energy. It’s hip and cool to talk about how we spend our money because of the economy but what about how you spend the other areas of your life? So kick back and take a siesta! Maybe you have to schedule one? So what. Do it! I guess my Mom was right about that also: rest is good son!

    @Jason dude I think we talked earlier about how to try and avoid ‘burn out.’ Did you not listen to any of that 🙂
