It’s summer! Bees will buzz, kids will blow dandelion fuzz and I’ll be doing what everyone does in summer!
Yes, I’ve just come back from a Disney vacation where I sang a LOT of Frozen songs! Kylie and I are taking two vacations this summer: most recently to Florida where my cousin got married, and next a camping trip in Yellowstone. I’m looking at summer as a time of renewal - is that possible in all this heat?
Sabbath rest and renewal are eternal themes in scripture and I encourage all to find a way to renew your spirit. Perhaps you don’t require travel for this renewal - and escaping into the pages of a good book will fill your cup to overflowing. Maybe you would rather take some time to rest waterside: pool, river, lake or ocean. Remember that taking time to rest and keeping that commitment to rest is a holy commandment (#4). So if your Sabbath days have included work - take some time to let your soul rest. Find a healthy way to revive your spirit. And rejoice for the opportunity to remember that your loving creator wishes you physical and spiritual wellness.
