A Day of Rest

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28 ESV)



Rest.  Just saying that word brings an automatic sigh.

Take today to rest.  No matter what you must do find the moment you can sit and just be.  Maybe it will be staring forward with no focus or maybe it will be gently closing those windows to the soul and letting the weight of your head fall forward.

Find time to rest the feet that carry you from point a to point b.

Rest your hands so that they can feel the rise and fall of your belly.

Rest your mind and listen to the breaths, gifts, you take.

Rest your soul and quiet the worries you carry.  Take time to acknowledge the sadness you may have pushed back.  Heal yourself with rest.

Find time to allow yourself to lose this world’s chaos.
