Peace and rest when you're tired and stressed
When you're tired or stressed, take time for peace and rest. Seriously.
Whether it's physical tiredness or an emotional marathon that's depleted you. Value rest. Take it. And feel the replenishing power of a well-rested body and soul come back to life again.
Rest isn't just laying on the couch or a comfy hammock, although it can be. Rest is ceasing from work...laying aside for a time that which you MUST, and in it's place choosing what you need.
What does rest to you? How do you get replenished?
