Rest, do you ever think about it? I mean seriously and intentionally plan rest into your day or week? Sometimes it seems we are going so fast we forget to stop. You know the old saying stop and take time to smell the flowers? While I think that’s a great idea, I am actually purposing more than that. What if you also made plans to plant the flowers? Take the day to visit the flower gardens? Drive through the countryside to see the flowers? You know, make plans for whatever creates a sincere rest for you.
Rest is different for each of us. I’m sure some of you are thinking “hey Cindy planting flowers is work not rest.” Yes, you would be correct for many, but for me playing in the dirt is rest. I love the feel of the dirt in my hands, so that’s rest for me. What’s restful for you, what things/activities create a peace for your spirit? How do you work that rest into your day? I believe it is important that we plan intentionally for rest… it’s good for our body and our spirit. Plan for rest.
Find Your Rest
In the spirit of rest, I am intentionally leaving this blog article short… I hope to leave you hanging while thinking about rest. So the question for you is this: what is restful and how can you work it into your day/week? Singing? Working out? Prayer? Walking? Reading? Playing catch with the dogs? Sewing? A ride on a motorcycle? Drawing? Playing guitar? Archery? Time with friends? Fishing? Baking? You get the picture… have fun building rest into your day! I leave you with things I consider restful worked into kaleidoscopes… photography is also restful for me. Seek and find your rest: rejuvenate your spirt, soul and body. Be blessed friends, thank you for hanging out with me.
