Because…Sometimes Rest is the Best Choice




Because, my eyes can barely stay open, after two and a half hours of sleep in the past three days.

I think I’m hitting the wall, but there’s just one more thing I can squeeze in.

Because 5 minutes of writing seems like a good thing to do, despite my heavy lids.

But, I confess it has been worth it.

All because the Doctor said “Bronchitis” and I had been dragging my weary behind around like a sad sack of potatoes.

When those meds went through me I was like Wonder Woman! I rearranged the living room, washed the floor, dusted, swept.

I was like non-stop Nellie meets the Energizer Bunny ON steroids.

But now I am feeling it…and I know rest is also good. Needful.

Because He Himself gives it.

Oh, Lord…balance these good medicines out for this daughter and give me your rest. It is good to get a lot done.

But, it is also good to rest.

May you also give rest to those souls who need it even more than getting their To-Do Lists done today, Lord.


Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31



And now I think I really am going to try to get some rest…Amen. Joining in with Kate and the girls…it’s been a while!
