Running on Empty?

Last month, my Pastor preached on the gift God gives of taking a day off every week. How often I have refused to take that gift!

When I was younger, I didn’t value rest. It seemed a total waste of time. How ironic that as I get older and could view my life as having less and less time that I understand the precious gift of rest. A day off each week to do whatever feeds my soul is priceless. I spend mine lounging in bed longer, quilting, watching a favorite movie or show and hanging out with my best friend.

Do you rest weekly? What does that look like? I’d love to know.
