On shutting off my (creative) brain for an entire week

I’m writing this in the Orlando Airport as I wait for our flight back to my inlaws in Georgia. This is the first thing I’ve written (sermons, code, prose, etc.) in over a week. This last week probably represents the longest time I can remember that I haven’t written something.

My body is exhausted. I haven’t run at all this week, but I’ve averaged over 25,000 steps a day and at least 8 hours a day in the hot sun on my feet, so my legs are aching. I’m also exhausted from being in large crowds almost all day every day for the last week.

But I’d do it again in a heartbeat. My kids had a blast. My son finally started swimming. My middle daughter (usually a theme park chicken) fell in love with roller coasters. My oldest daughter and I got to relive one of our favorite memories by walking around the countries at Epcot and eating together at our favorite taco place there. They’ll remember this trip for the rest of their lives.

I don’t know what will come of me shutting my brain off for a week but honestly, I don’t really care. After God, my family is the most important thing in my life.
