- Reading. I used to do a lot of reading. Unfortunately as I grew more and more tired this past year my reading virtually stopped. I enjoy reading and it does bring personal refreshment into my life. As I mentioned in another post I have been reading a lot of blogs lately too. I have enjoyed the different perspectives and writing styles of the blogs.
- Blogging: I started blogging when I went back to work in August. So far, it has been a great source of personal refreshment for me. I have enjoyed sharing the things that are upon my heart and mind on any given day. It has also been a great help in keeping me fresh and in keeping my “creative juices” flowing.
- Days off: This week, for the first time in my 12 years of being a pastor I am going to take 2 days off in a row (not including holidays that is). I am realizing that this HAS to be a NORMAL thing, not a once in a while thing. I know that this will mean some major readjustment to my schedule but I am committed to make the changes so that I can get the refreshment that I need.
I am sure more things will surface in the weeks and months to come, but these are the three areas that I am going to be focusing on for now. What are you doing for personal refreshment in your life?
