I usually get eight hours of sleep at night and wake up to my son’s rooster crowing as the sun bursts over the Andes Mountains. It’s much more peaceful than fighting with an alarm clock. 

Why NOT invite the entire youth group over for homemade pizza?

The Lord longs to be gracious to us, to rise up and show us compassion. I think that’s one reason why He reminds us to rest.

“This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: ‘In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it. Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.’”

Isaiah 30:15 & 18a
