Boxing Day Definition: The fight that goes on in one's head between relaxing and thinking we should be doing something useful. cf; John Calvin (After all that's what we were put on this earth to do do. Be useful, no?) I am supposed to be starting my vacation today. Another battle. I did sleep in mighty late, which I feel no guilt about whatsoever, but I am also headed to a parishioner's home for dinner, on my fist day of vacation. They are wonderful people and good company including their children, but I really should be doing all non-work stuff this week since plenty of church work and ministry meetings will be waiting for me on Jan 2nd. Perhaps this is my way of slowly shifting into a vacation rhythm that seems both so foreign and long over due. I wonder what Calvin did on his vacations. Probably read up on boxing.
