Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

Early in the Morning

I’m really beginning to love this time of day.  I always like to be up early before the kids, but there is something about early in the morning especially in the spring and summer.  Yesterday I read an article about crop rotation & this morning my devotion was about the Sabbath.  Connected?  Yep!  I got out my garden book & left-over seed packets & started planning & thinking & dreaming about taking the garden one step closer to my dream garden.  For several months it has lain dormant & rested.  Now, it’s time to start planning to make things grow again.  How often do we take a Sabbath to be dormant & rest?  To dream & plan & think?  God commanded us to rest.  He knew and knows how hurried our lives are, how stressful & tiring our running around is.  I’ll be the first to admit that is next to impossible to get it all done in 6 days!   But, I wouldn’t rob God by not tithing and yet, I’m willing to rob myself by not resting.  He commanded both!

Just as I enjoy the early morning when the mist and fog are on the pond & the coffee is fresh and hot & the house is quiet, I need to also learn to enjoy that Sabbath rest once a week.  What a gift to scale back the busyness & do something relaxing (like sew!  Which is a whole ‘nother case of too much to do!).  Have a blessed day and remember, plant your garden & then do some resting

And that’s what’s reflecting on the pond this morning.
