What does rest look like for you?
Is is a long soak in a hot bath?
Is is sitting down with a good book and a cup of hot tea, to sit and drink and read and enjoy the quiet?
Or is it taking a walk along the beach, taking some time out to think, reflect and to unwind?
Rest is so very important, not only for the body but for the mind and soul too.
Rest is one of my soul anchors. It is one of the things that I need to do to keep myself together when the wind and waves come at me during the storms of life. Whenever I feel like the chaos of life is getting to me I try to sneak away for some time of rest.
Rest for me is laying down in a quiet space where I will not be interrupted. I put on my favorite worship music and I just be still and let the music and words wash over me. My body is still, my mind is quiet and my soul is at peace.
