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. “I just made a 24-hour period,” “It will be half-light and half-dark, and it will keep repeating itself until the end of all time.”
“Wow,” the angel said, “What are you going to do next?”
God thought for a minute and said, “Well, I’m tired, I think I’ll call it a day.”
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.
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.
No wonder we are so exhausted.
Today, because of technology we bring the office and the field and the chickens and the cows and the shopping and the worries of life everywhere. We bring them to the table and in the bathroom and with us to bed at night. And too often we don’t follow the example of the creator. We never call it a day!
No wonder we are overcome with stress, distress, depression and anxiety. Call it a day. Lighten up and live!
Oh by the way, My grandson Preston, in the picture above calls it a day two or three times a day!
