Ok, I Can Take A Hint…

…Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.  – Deuteronomy 5:15

Well, my laptop took a nose dive on Sunday. It appears that no information will be lost and it will be repaired soon and covered under warranty, all good news.

My mental state at the beginning was not so good. At first I was panicked about the potential loss of so much material (personal, work, church). Then I started having withdrawal symptoms. I felt as if someone had removed my right arm. I didn’t know what to do… How to react… Then I realized I was functioning without it quite well. I relaxed and watched a movie with my family. I went shopping and bought a suit (my first ever… another story) and generally have gotten by without being plugged in to the web at a moments notice 24/7. Of course I do still have my PC at work and my PC at home but I have stayed away from them, for the most part, after working hours. I feel relaxed, calm, slightly uninformed but I’m kinda ok with that. Was I overworking and using my ministry duties as an excuse??? No, that doesn’t happen does it?? Well, needless to say whether it was just a faulty part in my computer or Divine Intervention, I get the hint. All work and no play make Rick a dull boy (and kinda hacks off the wife a bit too).

…so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.  – Genesis 2:2

    I agree with that! It was nice to have you not have a computer in front of your face, just relaxing! Try it a little more often as God intended.
