Sunday Reflection: Time to Rest and Time to Serve

Here’s a few thoughts inspired by the day.

Take Time to Rest – Everyone needs a day to chill out and renew. Everyone seems to be overscheduled and overworked and that isn’t good. We all need at least one day where we can reconnect with ourselves, others and, to reset ourselves. If rest is good for the divine its good enough for me. Rest and recreation are given a bad rap and that shouldn’t be the case for anyone. Don’t look for things to do because certainly you will find plenty of stuff to occupy your mind and time. Busy is not good for anyone.

Power In Service to Others – So many people look for power and status that they fail to realize that power can be found in serving others. Our world needs helpers more than it needs bosses these days. To me, service can impact the lives of many and that is a powerful thing. Everyone in service to others has the capability to make the world a much better place and you know that is a special place to be in. Not to say that people in power don’t serve but if one is just interested in a position and not the responsibility then there can be a problem.

I hope you all have had a restful Sunday and that you are ready to serve in the coming weeks ahead. Grace and peace and love to you all.
