I am sitting in Anacortes, WA in a big leather arm chair looking over the ocean through a room full of windows and having a hard time relaxing and not working. I was lovingly scolded by my good friend Joanna earlier on this morning as I was returning work emails, connecting of the phone with pastors and not taking time for friends and relaxation. So, in light of this I am going to take today as a day of rest.

I am going to sword fight with my kids, eat good food, shave, read ‘Linchpin‘ by Seth Godin and ‘Doctrine‘ by Driscoll and Breshears, go for a hike, eat, dream with friends, drink good coffee, and just be. I actually changed my phone voicemail to say that I am out of commission today, hard for me to do, but it is done.

Maybe my compulsive work nature is a result of my thinking that If I don’t do it that it will not get done and the world will fall apart. What ‘it’ is I do not know, but I feel like I need to be doing ‘it’. I am excited about this day and I hope to be able to lay things down enough that I enjoy it.
