Ahhh...The Sweet Life...

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.

For now,
May we know that one of God's many mercies is permission to rest,
Peace be with you,
