Ezekiel taking a break right before his Little Dragons Karate class.
To be honest, resting and sleep is a difficult thing for me. I love sleeping -- once I'm sleeping. I just have a hard time going to sleep. And resting may be even harder. There are so many things that need to be done.
Have you heard that line, "I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours"? Well, that's not me. Nope, it stresses me out that things are undone. Now, that does not mean I'm not a procrastinator; it just means I'm stressed quite a bit! So, I find myself always working. Or feeling guilty that I'm not.
But God created me a human being, not a human doing. (Yes, that might be becoming cliche, but true, nonetheless.) So, I'm learning about rest. That rest is a gift from God.
Today was one of those days -- a gift from God. Oh, I did stuff. But, I also sat. And rested. Yes, a little strange. But, oh, so good. And I am trying not to feel guilty. I guess I could do with some lessons from Ezekiel -- and maybe one of those exercise balls.
