How can I rest in the midst of all there is to do?

That is precisely why you must.

Fear drives out the love. When you work from fear, there is no love in your work. And we don’t want your loveless art. So give the world and yourself a gift and stop.

You are beloved. So take some time to be loved.

~Emily Freeman, A Million Little Ways


May Sabbath be like wiping the bathroom mirror of your foggy thinking as you choose rest over work.  Know His love is unchangeable regardless of your productivity or lack of it. The world will continue spinning when you stop and take your hands off. And perspective will be much clearer.

Happy Sabbath Friends!
