My kids are officially on Summer Break & oh the joys of no school work, staying home, making pancakes, playing outside, having lemonade stands, being with their friends and so much more!!! Yahoooo!!! I’m also challenging them to read for one hour a week so they keep their reading skills sharp – an important tool for success.
I believe that God gives each of us seasons of rest, but we must be mindful to consider that rest isn’t the same as amusement. For me, rest is constructive. Rest can be creating some space to think, be, listen & connect. Rest can also be the decision to trust that God is bigger than any challenge, hardship, difficulty, darkness or uncertainty. Jesus said that we can come to Him & find rest in Him, the One Who loves the entirety of who you really are 🙂
