"For skillful and godly Wisdom is better than rubies or pearls,
and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared with it." Proverbs 8:11 Amplified

Life has its joys and sorrows. Each day has its ups and downs,
crazy turns and sudden stops.

Unfortunately what we are hiding from won’t go away while we retreat from the world.

But, that day in bed, that day closed off from what’s out there waiting for us, may be exactly what we need to do.

A day of rest is NOT a wasted day.

Bury the guilt, turn off your cell phone,

silence the ringer on the home phone, send the kids to grandma’s and the husband on a camping trip.

You will be a better, stronger and emotionally healthy person.

Renew your strength, it is a good thing. Even God rested.

“He gives power to the tired and worn out, and strength to the weak. Even the youths shall be exhausted, and the young men will all give up. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:29-31 The Living Bible
