V.A.C.A.T.I.O.N.

Today is the first day of the rest of my lif….errr vacation! I’m really excited to have two weeks off, and I’m looking forward to spending time with my family. I know many ministers who don’t take their time off consecutively, but I really need to do that in order to fully unwind, decompress, etc. In fact, I make sure my 14 days run from a Monday through two Sundays. That way, I don’t have to do any active sermon preparation for two weeks. It really makes for a relaxing time.

My wife thinks it takes about three days for me to stop worrying about not having something to worry about. So, I guess I’m in the “cool-down” stage of my vacation today through Wednesday.

We’ll be leaving town on Friday on our way to Sea World in San Antonio and then on to Corpus Christi. My four year old daughter already has her map printed out and is planning our itinerary. I’m hoping to get my hands on some good books to read during my down time. Maybe I’ll post some comments if I come across anything interesting.

Take time to be holy; vacation oft with thy Lord! 🙂

  1. Enjoy the break.

    Your daughter sounds like my kids.

    I like to drive them crazy by insisting we drive the back roads and old highways. I like making unscheduled stops at greasy spoon diners, too.

    I only get away with this every now and then, though.

    Mom is on the kids’ side on these issues.

  2. You’re far too young to have been humming the grand old Connie Francis song V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N while you planned your trip. You could do worse than learn the lyrics and tune and bug your kids by singing it all the way to San Antonio!

    V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N! In the summer sun!
    Put away the books, we’re outta school!
    The weather’s warm, but we’re playin’ it cool!
    We’re on vacation, havin’ lots of fun!
    V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N! In the summer sun!
    We’re gonna grab a bite at the pizza stand
    Write love letters in the sand
    We’re on vacation, and the world is ours!
    V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N! Under summer stars!
    Yeah, we’ll hop in our jalopy to a drive-in movie,
    And never look at the show
    We’re gonna hug and kiss, just like this
    And I can’t wait to go-oo-oo
    We’re gonna mash potato to a jukebox tune
    Park your car ‘neath an August moon
    We’re on vacation, till the start of the Fall!
    V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N! We’re gonna have a ball! Goooooo!
    V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N! Gonna have a ball!
    Oh-ho, we’ll hop in our jalopy to a drive-in movie,
    And never look at the show
    We’re gonna hug and kiss, just like this
    And I can’t wait to go-oo-oo
    We’re gonna mash potato to a jukebox tune
    Park your car ‘neath an August moon
    We’re on vacation, till the start of the Fall!
    V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N! We’re gonna have a ball!
