Leaving the Oasis

How I wish we had one more day in Palm Springs.
One more day to splash in the pool.
To read.
To reflect.
To pray.
To laugh.
To play games.

I thought about using these days to get a jump on the weeks work, but the little voice in the back of my head said, "No."

The little voice, which is the Holy Spirit, said, "Renew your spirit.  Rest. Let me bring healing to your heart."

Work starts again this afternoon as soon as I return.
But I am grateful for rest and for resting.
I am grateful for sunshine and splashing and laughing and sharing time with my family.

And I want to build rest into my life.
It's been too long.
