Often we can get tied up in the busyness of our lives and forget to spend the time to simply "smell the roses". When was the last time you took an intentional break from the hustle and bustle of life? Are you planning on giving yourself some space to get that fresh perspective and recreation any time soon? It's worth asking yourself the question.
When we take the time to care for ourselves in this way then we find that we are more productive, more imaginative...simply better at doing the things we do, and being the people that God has made us to be. The Sabbath principal in Scripture relates to this. A weekly day of rest and regular time of recreation and restoration - it's the way God has created us to function best.
So go on, take a break! Take the time to smell the roses.
