5 Minute Fridays...Rest!
This week's word is Rest.
One of the blessings I took out of the cancer journey is the delight in the word rest. Before cancer...I was a doer...the more I could fit in my schedule, the happier I would be. It's funny when all your get up and go, has got up and gone, there is nothing left but rest. When I first started my journey, I would curse the rest...so very frustrated that I couldn't be out doing. At some point in the journey, I stopped wrestling with God...and rested...and rested...and rested....I didn't think I would ever get off the couch!
2 1/2 years into the journey, I no longer fight the rest, but delight in the rest...for it is within the rest that I can hear the whispers of God...and learned the art of just "being!"
I have looked so forward to this weekend, as we have worked and/or had obligations every weekend this summer...but not this weekend! I declared it is to be a weekend of rest! (Ok, I know we will do some work, but I am hoping for a few hours of rest anyways...(smile)
Hope you have a restful weekend too!
