On the seventh day, she rested
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. –Genesis 2:1-3, KJV
This is my goal today, to rest, and not do any work. It’s a bit late for no work, though, as I have already done laundry, run the dishwasher, picked up after the dogs outside, and sorted some paperwork. I’m pretty sure all of that was work.
Now, though, I plan to rest.
Yesterday my Amazon order arrived, with a lovely new book (new to me, anyway) from an author I like. I started reading it in the late evening last night, but was too tired to focus properly. Today, I’ll be able to take it all in.
I also picked up a couple of magazines at the bookstore yesterday, chosen for the images as well as the content. I may take a look at those.
I am appropriately attired for a day of rest–still wearing my cherry-print flannel pajamas. I have no plans to change!
Medicinal chocolate? It’s on the menu. And I’ve already taken a short nap.
I’m wishing for both of us–you and I–a lovely day of rest.
