"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
I don’t know about you, but I need rest. R-e-s-t.
It dawned on me the other day that there are 31 days in October. I remember seeing several blogs that participated in a 31 day blog series last October, and I thought, “How great would that be? To have the discipline to post every day for a month!”
I may be crazy. Fall is such a busy time for me. (I need rest, remember?)
But that’s why I’m writing “31 Days to Rest.” I need it. I plan to delve into different aspects of rest, learn more about it, and hope to pass something along. (If you’ll jump in and comment, I’ll learn from YOU, too! I hope you do.) I’ll be linking up with a bunch of other “31 dayers” found here.
Some of the things I hope to blog about this month? Here’s a tentative list:
Spiritual rest Physical rest Rest in the midst of chaos Rest = Grace
The restless heart God at rest Rest in your marriage Rest and play
Rest in your work Rest from social media Rest in motherhood
At rest in nature Afraid to be a slacker…
I really hope to stick to this “31 day” thing. I’ll do my best to post each day. If I fall short, I’ll still get around to doing 31 posts, even if they show up in November. (I’m sure we’ll all still need rest in November, too.)
So, won’t you come by and rest a bit here every day? And chime in – I want to learn from your experiences and discoveries. We’ll rest together.
I'm also joining Laura, Jen, and Michelle today.
