It’s the 4th of July. In America, it’s a national holiday.

If you’re reading this from another country, enjoy your day. This may not apply to you.

(But feel free to let it apply to you.)

Fourth of July - relax

But if you’re an American… you don’t need to be reading this today.

It’s okay to tell your students, “We’re not meeting tonight, and my phone is off. It’s a holiday. Spend time with your family.”

It’s also okay to say, “We’re grilling out at my house instead of meeting tonight. It’s a holiday.”

It is even acceptable to power down your computer and create an away message that says, “I’m unavailable for now. It’s a holiday. The world doesn’t need me to know everything that’s going on.”

However, I would personally recommend on other approach. Tell your family:

“I’m not working today. I’m completely yours. It’s a holiday. How can I serve you?”

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” (Ex 33:14)
