A Good Read

Because it is a vacation day, I have been able to spend more time than usual reading God's Word the Bible. The porch was my reading chamber and the hundreds of cars that fly past my house the backdrop.

I read the first three chapters of the Book of Genesis.

It's good to go through the verses slowly and thoughtfully. Every now and then as these are the beginnings of the planet, our knowledge of God, our own creation, and the fall of humanity into disobedience and death-bringing sin.

I soared through chapter 1. I worshipped in chapter 2. And I wept through chapter 3.

I hope you have a bit of time to drift through these chapters yourself sometime this weekend. Let me know their impact on you.

An Important Albeit Familiar, Reminder

"If you want to last over the long haul of ministry, you have to learn how to recharge yourself spiritually, emotionally, physically, and mentally. Here’s an easy formula to remember: Divert daily, withdraw weekly, abandon annually. Know what relaxes you and what recharges you -- and do it." - Rick Warren
