Take A Break

Spring break has sprung at the Barker house. Since that means it’s time to take a break from some of our normal routines, I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Short so it’s easy for me, and sweet so it’s a treat for you.

To fellow spring breakers — try to squeeze some relaxation time into your week “off” when you try to get everything under the sun done :) And to those of you who don’t get an official spring break, I encourage you to try to create one somehow (not at work — at home!).

Think of a couple of your normal responsibilities and simply take a break from them for a few days. That’s right. Get take-out or go out to eat instead of cooking. Ask someone to fill in for you on your volunteer commitments. Give yourself a break. Put your feet up. You’ll be glad you did. (Sweet, huh?)

“[Jesus] said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.'” Mark 6:31b
