It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest so you can be recharged for the week.
Normally I would tell you what I am doing to rest, but today is not about me. It’s about my daughter.
Tara, my daughter, just finished a summer of touring the nation with a drum corp. (For those of us not in music (like me), this means she was on a bus for almost 3 months performing a show at stadiums all over the country.) She developed some knee and shoulder problems after being on her feet 10 hours a day for about a month straight. But there was no rest in sight unless she dropped out.
Instead she figured out what to do to make it through. Lots of ice, a knee brace, and lots of prayers. And now she is able to rest. She is not on her feet 10 hours a day any more dancing, playing, loading, etc. Just the normal for work, school, and living. And now that she finished to the amazement of the staff and many of her friends, she gets rewarded. Not only does she know that she finished but the staff have recognized her as well. Well done in not only finishing, but finishing well.
What have you persevered through and got rewarded for?
With inky fingers,
