Sunday Selah

It will be a sign between me and the Israelites forever, for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.
Exodus 31:17

Rest.
I believe in the concept.

It's just the execution that gives me a little hiccup.

I've been away for about a day and a half of rest and celebration with Mike as we click the 22 year mark of marriage.

And I am refreshed. And back at the computer. And a bit overwhelmed by the week's calendar.

But I am refreshed.

And it is so sweet, so heartening to know that the Lord is refreshed by His times of Sabbath as well. It's not just that He rested after the creation.

He also was refreshed.

Refreshed.

Refresh...'breathe new life into, brush up, cool, enliven...rejuvenate.'

Even the Lord, the Creator of the Universe, needs times of refreshing.

How much more so do we?

Rest.

Refresh.

Selah.
