Rest #abcblogging

Labor Day is fast approaching.  A day of rest for most of the working class people.  In New Jersey it is the last day of summer because almost all schools start from Tuesday - Thursday that week.  A day of rest is important.  In fact The Bible tells us God rested on the 7th day!  In our hectic, crazy, never-stopping, filling each moment, making it count - lives - we need to observe some rest time.

For me I plan on kicking up my feet this weekend and reading a few books.  I plan on not thinking about homeschooling, blogging or cleaning - AT ALL!  I'm going to just enjoy my family and our time off together.  I know that come Tuesday it will all be crazy again!

How are you resting?

Matthew 11:28-30 - Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Genesis 2:2 -  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

  1. We value our day of rest in our family. For us, Sunday is our day of rest, but it's also a busy day too since my husband is the Children's Pastor of our! But it's a blessing to be able to sow seeds of faith into the lives of the children. Once we get home and eat our lunch though, my husband and I can usually be found napping on the couch. :)

  2. Timely reminder, as so many of us start schooling again, that rest is as important as doing all the rest we try to fit in. I "rest" first thing in the morning by spending time in God's word and in prayer. I seldom find any other time to rest so I use that to the best of my ability. - Lori H
