Rest

In the business of living it often is a challenge to find time to rest.

We fill our days with to-do lists and rush about seeking new opportunities to inspire and motivate us.

We are busy doing one task while our minds are moving on to the next chore.

It has become a way of life to see how much work one can get done in a given day.


We are so focused on what lies in the future that we miss the wonderful miracles that are happening now.  Perhaps that is why God designed a day of rest. 

Resting is necessary for optimum health...mental and physical.  It restores us and gives us time to take in the daily gifts that are waiting for us to unwrap.

Hope each of you will find some time to rest today.  Have a blessed week.

Hugs


Debbie


..."Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls."  Jeremiah 6:16 b

  7. Lovely sky photo. I've been resting these past two days as I had a bit of vertigo. It's nice to just do nothing every now and then.

  8. You are so right Debbie, and I can tell you, I always find time to rest after having had a period of great stress ( having to many irons in the fire )and consequently illness. xx

  9. Beautiful photo's, Debbie! You're right, rest is important. When I don't, and do too much, I get ill. I've learned this lesson the hard way.

  12. Such a beautiful, true and timely post! I'm getting over a cold, and I had such a hard time just resting yesterday. I got what I needed to get done, but then felt guilty about resting for much of the day. I should have simply been grateful that right now my life allows me rest right now while I need to.

  14. I really like this post, Debbie, and it's so true. I've been thinking a lot about this lately - how busy the world is today. It kind of makes me sad, wondering if people ever go into nature or go camping any more or take a hike or go up to the mountains. I think our chores and errands cause us to not spend time away when it's so necessary to our well being. Thank you for the gentle reminder that we need this day of rest very much. Your sky photo is beautiful.

  19. Nice Deb, photos are great. They are the real miracle of God. Many of us are in a mad rush to achieve our goals and we seldom look around to appreciate the things God gave us. It is so true we need to stop and take rest and look around for true inspiration. Please visit us at https://www.bloghasting.com/
