This post will serve as notice for all of you faithful readers of my end of Summer hiatus. Next week I leave for some much needed R&R on a secluded beach, and following my return, I will be devoting my time to some important items that I've been neglecting. If all goes well, perhaps these posts will pick up again in late August.

The need for balance is paramount to all of us. A well balanced life leads to a happier, healthier life in my humble opinion. Surely you've heard the saying, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Well, it's true. But in this day and age we define dull as depressed, on edge, sick, etc. Us humans need rest, we also need variety to stimulate our senses.

So as I set out to re-balance things in my world, I encourage you to do the same. Maybe it won't involve a secluded beach for you, but something as simple as watching a sunset might do wonders for you. Let me know how it goes.

Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore once said, "You can't cross a sea by merely staring into the water." At first glance, that may seem really obvious. But how many people do you know who seem to be in a perpetual state of preparation? Maybe it's you.

Short and sweet today: change only comes with action. Wishing for it doesn't get it done. There are things in all of our lives that need changing. Habits, situations, relationships, etc. Some big, some minor, but all important. Perhaps you can't even see what change might look like; it's as vast as any ocean you've ever seen, but you feel it in your soul that it's necessary. Use that feeling as fuel for action.

I happen to know that right now, Jesus waits to hear from you, and He can change everything you need changed. Perhaps your first action is to talk with Him. Don't wait...go!
