Sunday: A Day of Rest and Gratitude


Most of the things we need to be most fully
fully alive never come in busyness.
They grow in rest.

~Mark Buchanan~


Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass
under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the
murmur of water, or watching the clouds float
across the sky, is by no means a wast of time.

~John Lubbock~DSC00311

You must rest now.  Rest for longer than you are used to resting.
Make a stillness around you, a field of peace.
Your best work, the best time of your life
will grow out of this place.

~Peter Heller~


Rest nurtures creativity, which nurtures activity.
Activity nurtures rest, which sustains 
Each draws from and contributes to the other.

~Kim John Payne~


Rest and be thankful.

~William Wordsworth~

      I’m getting to know my new camera but I’m still on ‘automatic’ – lots to learn. Why is it so hard for us to rest??? It always is a bit easier when we go away. The photos of your camping adventure were enticing. Fun in the pop-up.
