Stop for one whole day every week, and you will remember what it means to be created in the image of God, who rested on the seventh day not from weariness but from complete freedom.” – Barbara Brown Taylor, Leaving Church
Not many words from me today….this day each week when I’m focusing on rest. Just a reminder of the value of time set aside for rest….no agenda….no list of to do items…completely free to follow whims and fancies with the reassurance that we are also reflecting the image of our Creator when we recognize our freedom to stop and take a deep breath.
Today is Day 25 of 31 Days of Soul Tending and the focus is entering rest. I’m reminding myself (and perhaps you, too?) that I have no reason to feel guilty for setting aside time for rest. Even as the Creator entered rest, I am also free to pause and rest.
