It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on resting and recharging.
Do you ever feel that you can’t escape the stress? Everywhere you look there is unrest or someone frustrated about something. Plans keep changing. This is shut. What was the normal yesterday has now changed.
So how do you survive and, do I dare say, thrive?
For me there is my faith and lots of prayer. For others there is a warm bath. For some it is a punching bag that gets them through. Whatever it is that helps you make sure to use it.
I was reminded of this topic when I looked up the acronym for rest. Now there were many but the one that stuck out to me was “rapid emergency shelter taskforce”. Usually this taskforce is sent to set up shelter where it is needed to aid in a natural disaster or for extreme circumstances with the homeless population. If the basics of shelter are not met then an individual can not rest.
So I would remind you to make sure to have your support group that will help you set up your tent when you need immediate shelter so you can rest. This can be in the form of a meal, someone to watch the kids, or simply an ear to listen. Do not let yourself get so run down without support or some kind of shelter. Make sure you take care of yourself so you can still be effective in your life’s purpose.
With inky fingers,
