Vacation...Sabbath...Time spent watching the grass grow while curled up on a porch swing...It has been ages since I gave myself permission to relax so much. This summer we had the privilege of spending a week on my in-laws 10 acres in Louisiana. It was pure heaven. Allowing my soul to catch up with my body brought a level of peace I have missed, a reminder that rest is as important a goal as any notation on a list.
This explains my absence on the blog. Rest also means necessary time to catch up with the list. Over the next several days, I'll post some sermons. And maybe, soon, a real reflection.
May we know that one of God's many mercies is permission to rest,
Peace be with you,
