Are you busy? Are you stressed and troubled? I want you to do something with me right now. Close your eyes and clear your mind. You are no longer in your office, your home, or your school (where you should NOT be reading this!) You no longer have homework, deadlines, phone calls to return, an office to clean up, a boss breathing down your neck...
Say the word with me: "VACATION." It just rolls of the tongue, doesn't it? Ahhh, just saying it brings to mind the sight of the road through my windshield and the taste of sweet tea as I relax. It brings my heart rate down. My wife would probably say it makes me easier to live with! :)
Yes, we are FINALLY going on vacation! Well, my wife has already traveled this summer, but summers are off-limits for vacation (for me) because that's when the teens are out of school and available.
It was an awesome summer. Teens grew closer to each other and closer to God. Their faith was strengthened. We had awesome participation.
Now it's time for Franklin to go away for a little while.
