"Turn Off Your Brain"
Tonight as I was rubbing Amy's back I began talking about a few thoughts that I'd gathered from Matthew 6:1 (which is the text I'll be preaching from this Sunday). This same type of sceneria plays out quite often between Amy and I: while she lays on her stomach or side, I delve into some heavy discussion. Usually she listens and engages me in the conversation, but tonight she rolled over and said: "I love you but could you just turn off your brain tonight and rub my back quietly." I laughted and continued to rub her back until she fell asleep. Although I did quiet down, I couldn't manage to "turn my brain off." Maybe I need to consider drinking less caffeine.
