TAKE TIME TO REST
And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
Well friends, it may not be possible for you to fly away like a dove, but its up to you to find a place to rest.
When you're only a little dog it pays to take your rest UNDER something. It reduces the chances of being tripped over.
Can you seek out a wide open grassy paddock with the sun shining on you, warming you soul? Or would you prefer sitting on a rocky beach, watching the waves break and sparkle onto the shore?
Or, for you, is it more like closing the door to the bathroom and breathing a big sigh of relief with the delicious silence for a second before someone calls "Where are you Mum? Can I have something to eat?"
Charles Spurgeon said: "Quietude, which some men cannot abide because it reveals their inward poverty, is as a palace of cedar to the wise, for along its hallowed courts the King in his beauty deigns to walk".
Whether in person, or in your mind take yourself to somewhere quiet. And rest.
