Sweet Rest

Sweet rest!  Oh how I feel restored today.  Maybe not as laissez-faire as the frogs in the picture but lol I am quite close.

I work as a schoolteacher and today we had a snow day.  This snow day was unusual in the event it did not snow.  Well at least in our area but it was predicted to have a 6 to 12 inch dump since last evening.  It did however snow in other cities within our state.  So what’s a girl to do with all this time on her hands? Let me count the ways.

Matthew 11:28 tells us to come all who are weary and burdened and we will be given rest.  Rest is defined as ceasing work or movement in order to relax, refresh or restore oneself.  I did indeed.  I went to the Lord in prayer about how I should rest today.  Extra sleep was a given.  Two hours more and a power nap to boot.

Other ways I rested today were cooking a nice vegan lunch for myself and hubby joined me as a nice surprise on break from work.  I am taking a break from doing report cards but will finish them up tonight.  Planning a much needed couples getaway very soon and connecting with old and new friends.  This normally wouldn’t happen due to a long work day and is reserved for an already jam packed weekend.  Very grateful for today.  I also got to feel like a learner and contributor to a broadcast on Periscope during this Black history month where the audience was asked questions. I do not often get to share my knowledge outside of the classroom unless I am doing so in one of books, blog postings or broadcast.  It was nice to join in with others today.

How will you rest today?  How do you rest?  I need ideas for future rest days. 🙂  Let me hear from you.
