For some people their ideal vacation would be sitting on a beach somewhere warm for 5 days straight. Not me. Maybe it's because our family vacations growing up consisted of organized busy-ness. We'd have an itinerary to follow. Disney on Monday, Epcot on Tuesday, Busch Gardens on Wednesday, and on it went. We wanted to experience [insert destination here] and we had a plan to make sure it happened.
Maybe that's why yesterday was a frustrating day for me. I don't get a lot of free time, so I like to plan out what time I have to maximize a) time enjoying the nice weather, b) time with Crystal, c) time with friends & family, d) time travelling/exploring/experiencing smoething new, e) time accomplishing something with my life.
Looking back on yesterday, I didn't accomplish much. Went to church in the morning, took a nap and watched a movie. Pretty sad isn't it? I had almost an entire day off and I had nothing to show for it at the end of the day.
Crystal says it's good to just "do nothing" every once in a while. I disagree. I've only got so many days on this earth, I want to squeeze as much out of them as possible. I want to come to the end of my life and be able to say I emptied the tank. I gave it everything I had. I didn't waste any time that was made available to me.
In Psalms it says we are to "be still." We are command to observe the sabbath.
I guess I have some work to do.
