Pastors don’t usually take Saturdays as their day off. Â Saturdays and Sundays are busy days for those teaching, preaching, serving, counseling, and overseeing in the church. Â So we picked a different day as our day off: Wednesday.
Last week we decided that not only did we need a day off, but we needed a day away. Â A night, in fact. Â So we rented a cabin on a small dam west of town and spent about 22 hours there.
We took advantage of the canoes and Abi’s new lifejacket for a little boating excursion.
Some friends of ours live just across the dam from where we stayed, so we canoed over for tea about 4pm (“official” tea time). Â We’ve never canoed anywhere for tea before, so it was a fun experience!
All in all, a nice day and night away. Â We even made it back in time for 9am meetings on Thursday, so now we know it’s doable!
