Later this week many families, including mine, will leave town on a spring break trip. This week is a sort of oasis for many people and families in these parts. For those longing for summer, it’s an opportunity to enjoy some warm weather until things warm up here. For students it’s a critical break from school and one that gives them the rejuvenation they need to finish out the school year. As with any vacation it is nice to take a break from the normal routine. It’s a form of rest that we need.
Can you imagine turning down a spring break trip because you loved your job so much? Can you imagine not taking a break from school because it was so fulfilling? Well, that’s what I suspect heaven will be like. There will be no vacations in heaven because we will not need a break from the meaningful work and lives we lead serving God in his presence. The flow of life will have enough variety, that it will be constantly fascinating. That’s what we have to look forward to. Until then, I’m glad there’s spring break.
