One of the reasons we love summer is it offers us a break from the frantic pace of life.  For a little while we stop being a cog in the machine, and instead focus just on being.  Ahhh……..feel the stress melt away, and joy return……

But then, the vacation ends; the calendar changes and “real life” returns.  And we are once again up to our eyeballs in the stress and business that makes life feel crazy.  What if that was never meant to be “real life”?

What if we all have been sold a cultural bill of goods that we were never meant to have?

What if the way back to “real life” is found in rediscovering the first ever declaration God makes about us?
