An ad came into my inbox this morning with this headline. Doesn’t it sound inviting? Living like you are on vacation..what exactly does that mean to you? For me it means not carrying the cares of this world on my shoulders..enjoying every moment..realizing that that life is to be savoured and fully embraced. Being on vacation also means taking walks..taking photos.. taking time to relax. Can we do this? I think so.. it is possible to realize that every day is a gift and to make sure that each day is made up of intentional decisions to live life to the fullest.
Our lives are filled with great difficulties and emotional challenges. Yet even in those times.. we must stop and do something for ourselves..something that says life is good. Take a break from the hard stuff and remember that you need to be refreshed. Carve out a little time for that walk..that rest..that great meal..a trip to the beach or the park. God is not a harsh taskmaster..He created this beautiful world for our enjoyment and He wants us to delight in it.
We were created to have abundant life..rich full life..life that is full of surprises..life that reveals to us the heart of our God. He is all about joy, peace, rest, relaxation, refreshment, renewal and restoration. I hope you are able to find a way to remember this today.
” Let all that I am praise the Lord, may I never forget the good things He does for me.”
