This past weekend I read two different books about the same topic - rest.
Both authors commented on our inaccurate understanding of rest in American culture - that you need to work to earn rest in order to rest to work some more. As soon as I read that, I found myself deeply identifying where I am in that cycle.
I wonder what rest looks like in your life? Do you rest in order to work or do you truly delight in rest? Do you grab for whatever little bit of rest you can have in order to hold off exhaustion at bay or do you see and respond to the root of that exhaustion in the first place?
We all need people in our lives who remind us to rest. So take this as your gentle reminder from me today - rest, my friends. Rest in a way that brings you life and life abundant.
