Back in the swing

It was hard for some folks to go back to work today.  We get spoiled very easily.  It is much easier to go back to work when  you know another day off is coming soon.

That was actually God's idea.  His people should never be more than six days away from a real rest.  With a schedule like that, going to work ain't so bad.  For the Israelites, God also called for several feasts every year.  That gives you weeks of celebration thrown in as well.

Maybe this year we can get closer to God's ideal for real living.  That's worth celebrating!
