It’s the weekend!

I am sitting and looking at our pew as I write this.  This pew is over one hundred years old.  It’s a part of our life together.  We’ve hauled it along with us each time we moved to different communities and homes.

The thing is . . .  I believe less is more . . . so moving means I sift, sort, and let go of many items.


Despite it all, the pew has remained.  It’s been painted several times over and put in a variety of places in our home.

And, yes, I wish I would have left the pew in its original condition.  What can I say?  I go through phases.

Anyway . . .

It’s a symbol of people, generation after generation, who took the time to come together, sitting and seeking space for soul-deep calm and peace.

This. is. sacred. rest.

it’s never easy to transition from the rush and busyness of the week but it’s essential to take a deep breath, slow down, and enter into sacred rest. Sacred rest is soul deep.

Focus on the words of sacred rest from Psalm 23:1-3 (The Passion Translation): 

The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd.
I always have more than enough.
He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.
That’s where he restores and revives my life. . . 

These words teach what occurs soul-deep as we intentionally step away from the pressures to rest in the presence of God.

I pray you will step into the space of sacred rest.

So.  Grab a cup of coffee, tea, or something.  Find a sweet spot to reflect and renew yourself in God’s oasis of peace. 

Happy Weekend! ~Kerrie
