Seeking Rest

Monday, June 2, 2014

"You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you." -St. Augustine

To rest in Him. We rest when we gratefully accept all that He allows in our lives. The beautiful and the not-so-beautiful. We give thanks for His gifts, and it becomes a form of rest for us.

Today I am resting in...


-The beauty all around, birds, mountain ranges
-Getting to read this book last week on rest... Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest

-Visiting people I haven't seen in awhile.
-Getting to tell my story...hard, yet cleansing
-The quietness of a morning
-Being brave
-Long walks and...
-Long talks
-Seeing a student of mine from twenty years ago
-Talks with the boys
-More healing
-Knowing that He does the best for us
-Garage sales
-Being honest with another person.
-Showing weakness and being accepted
-Accepting my limitations
-Seeing a friend's baby and toddler

I love the quote from St. Augustine about resting because our true rest is found in God! Visiting you today from Ann's place and counting blessings with you! Mary

Hi Debbie,

I'm hopping over from Ann's link up to count gifts with you. I like Augustine's quote there and use it too at times: "our heart is restless until it rests in you." Hmm.

Have a great week,
Jennifer Dougan
