SABBATH REST

A few years ago in Seminary we were instructed to have a SABBATH. A Sabbath is a day of rest and rejuvenation. It’s taken from the book of Genesis and the creation story. On the 7th day God rested.

At the time I was teaching school, in full swing with the girls mentoring program. I wasn’t officially life coaching but I should have been charging because I had so many I did that without the “official” title. I was in seminary. In addition I had begun the mission aspect of Hope and Healing which allowed for some international travel.
Plus I was working at a church. In short “INSANITY” Who does that? Well……… I did.

Fast forward a few years… Well I’ve pretty much kept the same pace but different avenues.

Yesterday we (my husband) and I had an ER visit. As I patiently waited and surveyed the halls, rooms, people I knew I needed to reinstate that assignment to my own life or else that visit would and could easily be me.

Today and every THURSDAY hereafter will be my SABBATH DAY. I will intentionally take time to REST! I will spend the time needed to revitalize myself. I will INTENTIONALLY focus on my emotional, mental and physical well being. IT’S ONLY ONE OF ME and I can’t lead on EMPTY.

Rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, refocus….will render LIFE REWARDS!
I MUST TAKE CARE OF ME!!!

We all must take care of the body God has given us.

My Sabbath Agenda

Book in the sunroom
Hair appointment
Massage
Manicure and Pedicure
Retire with book
Maybe draw or just end the day at
The Beach

I’m taking a SABBATH!

If God could create the world and man and take a day of rest surely I can.

After the rest… Gewanda’s Eyes will have fine tuned their vision!
