Heidi and I are both high-capacity, high-functioning people. We can pack a lot in....for many months...and many days without burning out. We get a lot done...we are efficient, productive & type-a achiever types. But sometimes that is all people see. They think we don't stop. We certainly do work hard....but for 12 years we have obsessively focused on cultivating habits of rest and renewal. For instance, each week we take a real sabbath, each month we do an extended sabbath (2 day sabbath) and each year we take a month off.
...but that's not even the half of it.
....there are more habits (weekly, monthly, yearly), but that's for another blog post.
On this sabbath day we spent some time at the river, together as a family.
Nothing to achieve
Nothing to produce
Nothing to accomplish
Just rest & renewal as a family
