From the introduction...
Welcome to this little book, it has been designed to help you make the most of your holiday whether you have a long weekend or two weeks away. We recommend that you spread the sections over a few days.
There are several great reasons for taking something with you to do on holiday. For many of us it takes a couple of days to get into the swing of not working and the activities in this book will ease you in gently.
If you have family you may have to plan or fight for a relaxing time and this is the perfect excuse for some quiet moments. Finally, holidays are an ideal time to discover more about your journey with God and about your Creator without the distraction of all those things that take our time and energy in a normal day.
These pages offer prayers and activities.
Some to challenge and some to help you relax and clear your mind. Do them at your own pace and don’t undo any good by worrying that you haven’t completed everything. Please look at the comments at the back of this book for some additional thoughts and ideas.
With every blessing,
Mark and Mary Fleeson
