It's funny. I went directly to your blog after writing a post this morning on my blog about this very thing.

I'll have to send people over to your blog, at least on a comment.

So true. And in a sense, for me, weekend has its own challenges. I don't want to get to Monday, thinking how I wasted the weekend. Your thoughts here provide some good directives for us, in thinking through how we need to approach this. And avoid "running on empty".

Jim I learned a few years ago the importance of a "sabbath." I actually think it saved my ministry and probably a few other things as well in my life. It has become very dear to me. I have more focus, more energy and even more time (amazingly).

Thank you for sharing your insight with us.

Oooo... I can just hear that pile of good books calling my name... :)

I just finished reading your very timely post. It is Saturday morning and I am at the office of all places. I've had one of those weeks. I was going to skip the gym today, but after reading this I may not. Tomorrow I'm preaching on the Sabbath from Exodus 20:8-11. Yet I seem to have come to a place in my life that a full 24-hour weekly sabbath is all but impossible. Self-care has not been high on my priority list, but it isn't completely within my control. Thanks for the reminder. Perhaps I can do some things to move in that direction.

Excellent thoughts. When we replenish our souls, we can love out of the overflow.
