So I heard Rob Bell (of Velvet Elvis fame) speak in Atlanta several nights ago, and I thought he was great. One of my favorite things he reminded me of was that God is a pleasure seeker. He encouraged us to take time off for a true sabbath, true rest where we live in the present moment and do things that we enjoy. Things good for the soul.
Bellydancing in a Greek restaurant on a tabletop is good for the soul.
(and no, I was not “under the influence” while said bellydancing occurred…it was Bethany’s bachelorette party, and that sort of thing was highly encouraged at this place)
