After a summertime hiatus I’m back but the routine is not reestablished. I’m being patient with myself and not fretting. This is about what counts not must’s and should’s and have to’s – it is the movement of the Spirit in a sense. Walking by the shore, talking to others, sharing good news, serving when the opportunity is there, taking time to appreciate creation, getting exhausted in the work sometimes, and relaxing other times. I hope that you take some time to enjoy times to work hard and to relax too. Jesus once said, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” (Mark 2:27) There comes a time to stop working and start worshiping – and times to work hard and enjoy the fruits of labor. Scriptures also remind us in Genesis 2, “The Lord God took the human and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” The very nature of creation is intend for us to work and enjoy labor. Don’t mess up what is a good thing – don’t worship your work, work at your play, and play at your worship. Get it right and in order and you will enjoy life, work, worship, and play all that much more.
