The day also helped me to reflect on the wonderful experience sabbatical has been. As I worked on the various projects I wished to do during sabbatical, I was drawn closer to God because the noise of everyday life was filtered out in favor or something that gave me an invitation to listen.
- The music reached a place in me that never has a chance to get reached that deeply. And because there was so much music, I was able to stay in that place much longer than ever possible.
- The writing helped me to reach deeper into how I experience God in my life. It really helped me to reflect on what God has done and continues to do.
- The reading gave me insight that I know will help me as I re-enter the world of working.
- The relaxing and silence did exactly what the books say they do. They let me simply be. They let me experience the love of Jesus uninterrupted by anything.
Sabbatical has been relaxing, refreshing, rejuvenating and renovating.
