Mark 6:30-31 The Message
Well, just as Jesus told the disciples, I heard Him say to me, "come off by yourself and let's take a break and get a little rest." I believe Jesus was totally cool with me being in my PJ's, watching Lifetime yesterday and chilling. It's been so long since I've had a PJ day. I try to do it twice a year. This is when, on my day off, I don't even get out of bed except to go to the restroom or get something to eat. I lay down all day, read, watch movies, talk, snuggle with Teeb, sleep, but whatever I do it's done from my bed. Wonderful day. The kids have also gotten to the age where they are old enough to understand PJ day. And they roll with it.
My life has been a time of constant coming and going lately in ministry and keeping my home and family going. God was so gracious to give me rest yesterday. Of this I am eternally thankful!
Now, it's back to work. (I work most Saturdays at least 1/2 the day on church work and 1/2 the day on home work.) Lar and I are tag team preaching tomorrow. 3/4 of the message has been done but I've been having struggles finalizing the end, but today's the day to cap it off. I hate waiting til' Saturday to finish anything but some days you just don't have "it". Gotta have the "it factor", you know? Larry will do Men's Breakfast early this morning. Put the finishing touches on Father's Day. Get clothes ready for tomorrow. Clean the house. Make some calls.
It's back to work, but yesterday was so extraordinary. Thank you Jesus, for rest.
