When God takes a day off

“So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it because on it God rested from all the work that He had done in creation.” (Genesis 2:3 from the New Revised Standard Version)
    Imagine with me a bit of foolishness. Here is God trying to take a day off. The angel Gabriel is helping him get ready. Gabriel says, “God, I’ve packed up your cell phone, iPad, and your laptop so you can stay in touch.”
    But God says: “I don’t need any of those things, I am going to rest and reflect on creation. What a wonder that is, even if I say so myself.”
