I caught myself beginning my day with a check list. Things that I had to get done before relaxing. I realized I was missing the point of a day off of work. God likes us to rest - He created us with that need.
I finished my 4 'jobs' then sat down and took a deep breath preparing to read and write. I wondered if I had missed a blessing God had waiting for me - if I had only rested. I will never know I guess.
I drives me a little crazy if everything is not organized to my liking before I rest. I am beginning to understand that is totally unrealistic. I need to force things to wait - they are not going anywhere.
I will try next Monday to do a better job of embracing a true day off...
