my day off

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...
