Some things in this life just don't make sense

Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?
How do snowplow drivers get to work in blizzards?
Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?
And when you transport something by car it's called a shipment, but transport it by ship it's called cargo??

Yeah, those are silly. But here's one that isn't.

Why do kids get spring break when it's the adults that really need the rest? :)

Twice this week I've seen kids Bunny teaches piano come into and out of the sanctuary here with all the energy in the world. When they reached their parent's car, they found them with the seat reclined - just trying to get a little rest. I guess we've always tried to do too much.

30 The apostles then rendezvoused with Jesus and reported on all that they had done and taught. 31 Jesus said, "Come off by yourselves; let's take a break and get a little rest." For there was constant coming and going. They didn't even have time to eat. Mark 6:30-31 (MSG)

You know, there's a reason God set up the Sabbath and said "six days you should work, and then on the seventh you should rest." We cannot keep ignoring how God intended us to live without facing the consequences in frazzled nerves, worn bodies and restless souls. Take some time each day to encounter God in His shalom peace. Make sure you take time to make memories with your family.

But above all, vote for the candidates that will give adults spring break every year. ;)

Do you think recess would be asking too much?

Have a great weekend.
