"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 me...flowers, birds, mountain ranges
-Getting to read this book last week on rest... Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest
-Getting to tell my story...hard, yet cleansing
-The quietness of a morning
-Long walks and...
-Seeing a student of mine from twenty years ago
-Talks with the boys
-Knowing that He does the best for us
-Being honest with another person.
-Showing weakness and being accepted
