Rest

There are vacations for sight seeing, vacations for bonding with friends and/or family and vacations for sitting in the sun, feet up, phone off, favorite beverage and reading materials close by. The trick is knowing what is needed when and doing just that.

Rejuvenation

One of the things I most enjoy about this semi-retired phase of my life is the time to occasionally be leisurely in the morning. I am so grateful for the time to sit in my favorite meditation spot, feet elevated, knees on ice, coffee and water at the ready for as long as I need to pray, to think, to meditate, to read, to write or to just be still.

Just as sleep rests and rejuvenates my body, my morning routine restores and renews my soul.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.” Mathew 11: 28, MSG

Perfect Peace

We try so hard to understand what is beyond our comprehension, to explain what we don’t fully understand. What if we just rested in the flow and trusted in the All-Knowing…

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” ~ Isaiah 26:3 NIV

Inhale Peace, Exhale Strain…
Inhale Rest, Exhale Fatigue…
Inhale Trust, Exhale Weariness…

Oxygen Mask

The safety briefing prior to a flight always includes the reminder to put YOUR mask on before helping others in an emergency. And while we wouldn’t question the wisdom of that directive, in our lives we are constantly flying from one family crisis to another, flailing and sometime failing because we are operating without oxygen. We are trying to help others when we can’t breathe…

Who will give me wings,” I ask—“wings like a dove?” Get me out of here on dove wings; I want some peace and quiet.” Psalm 55: 6-7, MSG
