Is Freedom Really Free?
I’m talking about free time.
I’m taking the day off work today. In fact, I won’t be working for the next three days. In other words, it’s a free weekend.
So, do I have lots of free time?
Not exactly. Here’s a short list of some of the things I plan to do (not necessarily in order).
Bible school. Swim lessons. Pool. Make food for party. Host party. Clean up from party. Bull horns at 7:00 a.m. Host breakfast. Dress kids in red, white, and blue. Walk to parade. Watch parade. More swimming. Hang out with kids. Cook. Clean. Shop. Gather with friends. Church. Cookout. Exercise. Drive kids around. Read. Write. Stake out seats for fireworks. Walk to fireworks. Watch fireworks. Sleep.
Here’s to freedom! It doesn’t sound like I’ll have a lot of free time. But I wouldn’t trade my weekend for anything.
Have a great weekend! How will you enjoy your freedom?
