Spring Break 2010

Spring break is not just for the students.  As a college instructor for over ten years, I can confidently say that faculty members also very much enjoy a little time off in the springtime.

Most years, for me, spring break means that, for a week, I can focus on my primary job, which is pastoring a church.  For this week, I have a little more time in my schedule.  I can catch up on a few items on my “to do” list. 

I can catch my breath. 

Today, here in eastern Iowa, it is supposed to be sunny and in the mid-sixties.  I will ride my bicycle to the church this morning, and this afternoon, for my exercise, I will both ride, and run outside.  It should be a beautiful afternoon for exercising outdoors.

A breath of fresh air!

Last week, I enjoyed a week with my son and his fiance, who were down for their spring break.  They are planning their upcoming wedding and are excited to begin their life together.  I suppose that you could say that they are in the springtime of their lives.

Excitement is in the air!

Spring break is good.  You don’t have to go to some far off location.  You certainly don’t have to party, and get drunk, and behave stupidly.  It is a wonderful opportunity to catch your breath, take a break, enjoy the changing seasons, relax a little, and refocus on what is important in your life.

    …and a time for spring cleaning, getting all the sticks and winter trash picked up in the yard, getting the sludge cleaned out of the gutters from winter, for the houses to start popping back up on the market that were pulled off over the winter, for more mud to start being tracked into the foyer carpet, for storage containers and cleaners to go on sale, for kids to start arguing with parents about wanting to wear shorts and tank tops out,…*grin*

    Amen to that!

    Beautiful weather the last couple of days. I heard the word “snow” in the forecast for tomorrow… hoping it’s some kind of cruel joke!
