If you’ve listened to my Developing A One Year Personal Growth Plan resource then you know I’m a big fan of pulling away. Pulling away for a time of relaxation, recovery and renewal. There are several key times to pull away, including:
– Every week (your sabbath)
– Every year (your vacation)
– After a busy ministry season
This last one is what I’m doing. We’ve been running hard without much of a break since well before Easter so Kelley and I are pulling away for a five day weekend. We are heading out to Los Angeles and the grandparents are keeping Alexandar (who is almost two years old btw).
I’m flying from JFK to LAX at 7:30pm today on Virgin Atlantic. It’s a brand new airline in the area that promises to overcome some of the many challenges facing fliers like me and you (larger seats, better service, less stress, electrical outlets in the seats and wireless internet access coming soon). So far, I have to say I’m very impressed with the treatment I’ve received! I’ll let you know how I feel after the 6 hour flight.
Big Question: When are you scheduled to pull away? By yourself? With only your spouse? With only your family? You gotta pull away sometimes (if I recall, even Jesus modeled it!).
Gotta run, I’m going to go pull an “Aladdin Factor” and see if I can get upgraded to First Class . . . you don’t know if you don’t ask!
