It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone. Don’t you know He enjoys giving rest to those He loves?
So Ana and I just got home from a weekend retreat down at Saint Meinrad, and we listened to some CDs in the car from a conference on vulnerability. Very enlightening.
The speakers said that in studying joyful people, people who considered themselves joyful and having joyful lives, that one common thread was that:

How is your rest? Do you sabbath weekly?
How is your play? Do you play regularly?
