  3. As I go from a semi-busy season at work to a full-bore busy season–I truly needed this long weekend. God is soo good to know when we need to stop & take a Sabbath rest.

    This weekend I have napped a lot & just rested, watched a little TV & gotten a few chores done. It feels absolutely wonderful & I feel a bit refreshed!

  4. I plan to get ‘rest’ this weekend by preparing to give the Children’s sermon for next Sunday! The title is “Some of my favorite things!” I will also visit a friend in the hospital who had to have emergency surgery! OUCH!
