Singers take advantage of rests written into the music to catch their breath. Travelers use rest areas along their journey to take a break. Finding time for rest and renewal is important.
Life may seem too busy for rest, but that is the time we need it the most. Listen to the body and pay attention to the familiar signs of stress or fatigue. Aware of the need for renewal, take time to relax, pray, meditate or do what helps to feel rested. A simple exhale of gratitude can remind us of the source of our strength and peace. In those sacred moments, we can be restored.
We find the strength to continue when we take time to rest.
