ceasing and resting

      Imagine seven days in a row, all crowded with work and have-to, with seven more coming right behind them. Now imagine having one whole day in between, for nothing but resting and enjoying and looking up and remembering thank-you.

“Six days you shall labor . . . but the seventh day is a day of ceasing and resting. . . .” Exodus 20:9-10
