It Is Well With Our Souls
It Is Well With Our Souls is a title/label I'm putting on blog posts about relaxing. About being okay with down time or whatever you call that time that refreshes you.
It's time we all need.
But I fear, in this crazy world we live in, that at times we are driven to go, go, go.
Well, we need to add in the rest, rest, rest.
And this rest looks differently to everyone.
One of my ways to 'rest' is to read. I love reading books. It is one of the things that brings me rest. Yes, my mind is working processing the words and envisioning the images, but I'm also soaking in the beauty of the words and 'resting' in them.
The book I'm reading now is The Soul of The Rose by Ruth Trippy.
This book is not only well written, it's good for the soul. (Forgive ALL the puns in that statement!)
At the end of the day, the crazy day usually, I make time to read this book. It's my time to relax and refresh.
So, you know what's next.
You tell me how you refresh. And next week consider me your accountability partner for confession time on how you relaxed the previous week.
