Good grief. Don’t you sometimes think the pace of our society is turbo? It can get insane! It’s enough that you have to work five days a week, but some weeks you have to work more. Yes, you’re thankful for your job, but there is so much else to do. Getting the kids to school and school events. The grocery. Pick up medicine at CVS. Can you work in a little special time for the family? And, there’s the everyday stuff like…eating, sleeping, yeah! Those emergencies…like the air conditioning breaking down. STOP…LET ME GET OFF THIS RUNAWAY TRAIN!!!
What you need is a day off! Then you, too, could be relaxed (and bored) with Supergirl and Batgirl, sitting on that park bench. Boring can be relaxing!
(Jesus speaking) My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10
Jesus doesn’t want you to run around “like a chicken with its head cut off.” A rich and satisfying life is a life you can enjoy. Sure, you work and have goals and accomplish them, but you also have time for your family, your friends…and yourself. Connect with Jesus and see the path your life could take.
You know, maybe today is the day to start planning a day off. At least, a time to do something you find relaxing. Even if it’s hanging out with Supergirl and Batgirl. (On second thought, if you’re a guy with a significant female other, maybe you should think of something else.)
