Have you ever wondered what God did on the seventh day?
Surely He didn't need the rest.
He just made an entire universe, so I guess He might have been a little tired.
He might have been showing us the rhythm of nature and the process of production and rest.
Or maybe the rest we all need in the light of busy-ness, is exactly God's design.
Every year my family takes a year long Sabbath during Christmas. We take off all work for a couple of weeks to try and rejuvenate, and make it a conscience effort to stay in the game.
For a guy that's addicted to production, it's pretty hard to slow down for the first few days, but as soon as the rhythm of the ocean, the wind, and the salt water begin working their magic, I'm refreshed and ready to start again.
I've already got some great ideas for the new semester, I can't wait to share them with you.
