One of the best things I’ve done recently is to start observing a Sabbath. By Sabbath, I mean a day of rest. I’m not legalistic about it, but it is designed to be a dedicated time of guilt-free rest. Obviously as a pastor, I can’t take all of Sunday off. But I do attempt to take Sunday noon to Monday noon as my Sabbath.
I’m a fairly driven person. I want to both consume and produce as much content as I can. It is difficult for me to slow down. That’s why I need a Sabbath.
Today has been a reminder of how good this could be. On a dreary day, I was able to relax on our couch with a good book, one of my mom’s knitted blankets and two of our three cats. This resulted in not one, but two naps. All guilt-free.
Have a relaxing Sunday afternoon is not only good, it is Good News.
Why do I blog about Good News?
