mowing 2There are two kinds of work – work that drains, and work that energizes.

There are two kinds of rest – rest that re-creates, and rest that only adds to the fatigue, loneliness, isolation, or emptiness.

None of us were created to work incessantly.  We were all created with a built-in cry for a Sabbath – a rest.

Unfortunately, we live in a culture with plenty of instructions for work, and precious few for re-creation.

Sometimes the rest is calling, but we can’t answer.

So here’s a thought:  If you can’t take the day off and rest, take the day ON and reenergize.
