“May your soul be refreshed with an unexpected Sabbath, a necessary pause, a rest, a replenishing of hidden stores. May death and age be driven back another day, worry and the overload of care be banished from your little kingdom. May liberal Joy give you permission to play again, to dream, to slow the times, to lengthen the day with blessedness. She is beautiful. May she come to you with full hands.
“In Christ, the Lord of the Sabbath, my day of rest and wonder, Amen.
“May you know true rest. May you recognize its voice when it calls to you. May your body submit to the soft invitations of quiet and stillness. And may you not fear to lose yourself to the fascinations of a brook or the music of a human voice, that charm the soul to its own calm ends. May you find a Sabbath among the silk.”
~David Teems in To Love is Christ (July 31)
Stilled by these words,
There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. ~Hebrews 4:9 NKJV
