Today Amanda and I are leaving for Maui, Hawaii for a much needed vacation. No, we're not rich... my parents are paying for the room and board, we just had to pay air fare. We're going with my brother Joel, his wife Becky, and our two nephews as well as my parents. We've both been feeling so exhausted from work and life and everything in between. This will be a much needed rest. I plan on reading quite a bit and among the books I'm taking with me is Marva Dawn's Keeping the Sabbath Wholly. Hawaii will be a great backdrop for rethinking the importance of Sabbath in my life.
