Today was a day of rest. And it was wonderful. The busy week and hard work of yesterday (I helped my sister move out of her dorm room that is on the second floor of their unit…wow, exercise!!!) was paid off by sitting for a bit this afternoon with my feet up (well, I also slept through my alarm 😦 ). Rest is healthy. Almost felt like an exercise in itself. 🙂
Do you remember when you were little and you had to take naps. I never wanted to nap, because I thought I would miss out on something cool. Now I wish I could nap everyday! I always love when I do get a nap in! Sometimes they are planned and I sleep for hours. Other times, I sit down to work on something, but instead my body shuts down. Like this:
I hope this week allows you to get some rest as well. Rest can even be like what I did today–I did not nap any, but I purposely sat down and took some time just to rewind and relax. Rest.
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
More to come…
