It was creation. God and an angel were sitting on the edge of the universe just enjoying the scenery. God took a deep breath and said. “Look at all the beautiful things I have made. These things are good.”
“I have wrapped them in a 24-hour period. Half will be light, half will be dark and it will keep repeating itself forever.”
“Wow,” the angel said, “What are you going to do next?”
God thought for a minute and said, “I think I’ll call it a day.”
Not a bad name for the 24hr period and not a bad idea. If God took time after creation to “call it a day” maybe we should occasionally do the same.
Years ago darkness would drive people from the fields. They would come home take a shower and spend the evening with the family. They could not bring the field or the cows or the chickens into the house. They called it a day.
Back then men and women would come home from work. They couldn’t drag the office with them. They turned out the lights, locked the doors and came home. They called it a day.
With today’s technology, we bring the office, the field, the cows, the shopping and all the worries of life with us everywhere we go. We drag them to the table and even the bathroom. They follow us to bed.
We never call it a day!
No wonder we are so exhausted, overcome with stress, distress, depression and anxiety. We need to follow the example of the Creator and…
Call it a day!
Oh by the way, My grandson Preston, in the picture above calls it a day two or three times a day! I really like that idea!
Are you able to unplug from the technical busyness of life?
What is your secret?
