Stop for one whole day every week, and you will remember what it means to be created in the image of God, who rested on the seventh day not from weariness but from complete freedom. The clear promise is that those who rest like God find themselves free like God, no longer slaves to the thousand compulsions that send others rushing toward their graves.~ Barbara Brown Taylor ~
from her book Leaving Church
Today I will be resting. Up at o'dawn hundred to make an airport run and then a foot doctor appointment and procedure. I won't be moving around much today.
Interesting to think of rest as a characteristic of the Divine. I am going to have to meditate on this:
rest = freedom
Tell me your thoughts.
