Everyone needs to take a vacation from time to time. This year Annie and I decided on a staycation to save some dough. We did a lot of sleeping, reading, movies, and random activities around Nashvegas. We did dinner at the Melting Pot for our anniversary (if you haven’t experienced the fondue goodness there, you should go sometime). We saw Jesus Christ Superstar at the Boiler Room (more on that later). We went to Burgess Falls and saw a good sized waterfall. We visited a used bookstore which is always a favorite of mine. All in all, we enjoyed a relaxing with few obligations. It was nice to get away from blogging, working, preparing, and everything else. But now…it is time to get back in the saddle. I am thankful for vacations. They are needed to refresh and refocus. I was reminded of God’s goodness and revelation in creation. I was reminded how easily my priorities get shifted in the midst of the normal weekly madness. I was reminded of how good the gospel is.
