It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on resting and recharging.
I’ve often heard that rest is for the weak. Rest is for when you are dead. Rest in peace is often on a headstone. Just walk through a cemetery.
But today I want to talk about the fact that rest in peace is not just for when you are dead. It is also very befitting for when you are very much alive.
When your kids are little and you want to take a nap, do you get to? If you lay on the couch it is pretty hard to take a nap if a little munchkin is climbing all over you. Or worse that munchkin is out of sight and quiet.
Or when you lay down and your spouse or significant other wants to talk or ask you what’s for dinner. Or when your puppy is awkwardly bouncing all over the place.
My point is this…you need peace in order to rest or nap. So if you are trying to rest make sure the house and those in it are peaceful. Rest is so much sweeter when it is not trampled on.
With inky fingers,
