Have not been as attentive to blogging over the past few weeks. Next week, my family and I will be on vacation (woohoo) but as is often the case, there is much work to be done in advance. My business has one full-time employee (me) which means there’s a rush to get projects completed before I go. Not to mention packing. And other prep.
Reminds me of an old saying – there is no such thing as vacation, only redistribution.
Everything still needs to get done. So I cram some in before we leave. And I’ll be squeezing out extra time when we return. At some point I’ll catch up. And it will all get done.
This morning I’m thinking, though, what happens when I take a vacation from doing God’s work? Yes, it happens. It could be a day, or perhaps a week, sometimes longer. My great plans to advance the Kingdom on hold while I focus on house, work, family, fun, etc.
When I’m “on vacation” from God’s work, no one picks up the slack. The poor go unfed. The lonely go uncomforted. The lost go unfound. When you think about it—my mission has one full-time employee (me), too.
Guess while I’m away, will need to do some thinking about redistribution.
