A RESTFUL Thanksgiving Weekend

Good Evening, God!

I was busy as usual on Wednesday . . . but then Thursday I slept in and then napped later on.  We were joining a dear friend’s family at 6:00 for dinner.  Around 3:00 I made the fresh cranberry relish and at 5:20 gathered up the pumpkin pie and wine and off we went.  A lovely and delicious evening!

This morning I slept until 7:30 a.m.  Got up and had a bite to eat with my wonderful  husband Kit and then I went back to bed until 12:20.  Sleeping longer at one time than for months and months!  I’m thankful!

I’m also thankful that I now know rest does not mean that I stop moving!  The body is designed to MOVE.  And thankfully a friend was willing to go swimming with me.  Swimming with a friend means twice as much time in the salt water — which is good.  And a little less time swimming hard which isn’t good . . . but worth it to be in the water longer.

Now I’m home and hoping to get to bed soon and sleep-in again.  Appreciating what feels like it might be a sabbath type rest.  Hmm.  One day in seven of full rest.  What a loving Commandment, God!  Meant for our good.  But oh my!  So hard for me to keep!

Story teller,
