Day Twenty – Doing Nothing
The following post is from a series of emails I wrote to my girlfriend at the time, whilst on a trip to Africa. She is now my wife, so I did something right.
After working all night, and most of the morning, it was so nearly finished! The deadline was 4 o’clock, and yet at 3, one of the people who needed to sign it asked for some changes…
So in 45 minutes we rewrote the thing, packaged it up nicely, restapled, and delivered it, with 15 minutes to spare.
And then, to celebrate, we did nothing.
“Heaven and Earth [and long-winded health department registration documents] were finished, down to the last detail. By the seventh day God had finished his work. On the seventh day he rested from all his work.”
