TWO REASONS TO TAKE A BREAK

 You might consider a break: Reason 1.


This Sunday begins Lent. In the Christian world, Lent is a time for a break. Take a break, reflect on Jesus in the wilderness, think about your "wilderness," that place where you can be alone with the Creator of the universe. Breathe. Relax. Get fixed for the next step..

Another suggestion: take a break and look for spring flowers. If you're north of the equator you might find flowers in bloom--on trees, on ground plants like daffodils.

Maybe you're not a Christian. Still, you can take a break.  




Take a Break; Reason 2:

The news can be a downer, especially right now.  Read something that's more enduring than the day's news. Here's a peak at what you can find: 

"Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted by Satan: Come quickly to help us who are assaulted. . .; let each find you might to save. . . .Amen." (Excerpted, Book of Common Prayer.)

Take a break in any quiet place you can find, with anything you can watch, read or listen to, and let the Spirit give you rest. Hope I'm not thinking just of myself but of others, too, who might be fagged out by conflict, work, responsibilities. . .whatever.        Take a break.
