What I Did on my Summer Vacation

I ate at Bulldog Northeast, Brasa, Stella’s, Izzy’s, and many other of my favorite Minneapolis restaurants.

I laughed.

I got to meet a sweet 4-month old boy and make him laugh.

I drank wine around a bonfire.

I went to a Cheap Trick concert.

I read Don Miller next to a lake.

I stayed up late.

I slept in.

I watched friends get married.

I drank gin & tonic(s) out of a mason jar.

I drank coffee and read the newspaper on a Sunday morning rather than go to church.

I went on boat rides.

I went to the dentist.

I got sunburned.

I got rained on.

I talked about God with some people who I never would’ve expected to talk about God with.

I read a lot.

I got approved by my candidacy committee.

I vented.

I tasted wine in the basement of a gift shop in rural Wisconsin.

I went to the Minnesota State Fair.

I ate a lot of junk at the Minnesota State Fair.

I told jokes.

I toured a mansion that was built in the 1800’s.

I remembered that I can survive without the internet.

I conspired to change the world.

I conspired to change the church.

I conspired to change myself.

I took a Sabbath.

And it was good.

What did you do on your summer vacation? Even if it was just for an hour.
