This blog is short and hopefully sweet because I am officially on vacation. Here are my top three priorities for my time off:
I spend wonderful amounts of time connecting with people on Facebook, Twitter, and blogs. I will probably still peruse and post some, but my plan is to disconnect in a greater way than normal. It gives me reason to renew other aspects of my life.
I spend lots of time working on the latest sermon, activity, or deadline. I spend too little time reading. And I spend for too little time reading something other than church leadership and church-related books. I plan to do some fiction reading.
For me, one of the best things I can do is not live by a schedule. I like to be able to just float where the wind blows. Of course, we are right now dealing with issues of replacing a car that was totaled, a wife that was bruised up, and a daughter who has strep, that makes relaxing a bit more difficult, but not impossible.
If you happen to take some vacation for yourself this summer I encourage you to think about these three ideas.
I may write again next week and let you know how it’s going. Until then…
Holy high-five to you, Mike
