—Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dict. (11th ed)

Vacation… a time away…
a time to vacate the usual…
but not a time to be away from Him…

For me… vacation leads to finding Him in new places…
not just in a different physical… geographical… locale…
but in movies… a novel… I wouldn’t otherwise have time for…

We cannot vacation from Him…
we may miss regular worship services while away… or Sunday School…
but it can be a time to see Him in new light…
take more time to spend with Him…
not just squeeze Him into your busy schedule…

He is Life
keep life in your vacation…

recognize Him while you’re away…

…for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9 ESV
