Relevant Rest

Why is it that God rested on the seventh day after completing the creation of the world?  He is God, isn’t He?  While acting as an example for humankind, God was establishing the importance of rest.  Our bodies need sleep, oxygen, water and food.  Necessities like these remind us of the dependence we have upon an all-powerful God.  We ask God for our “daily bread” to symbolize we are depending on Him for our nutrition for survival.  Our heads start to nod off after a busy day of work signifying our inability to keep going, going, going. 

I am dependent on God.  I can not “do life” by myself.  After the last year of ministry to students at BBC, to women at Women’s Study Fellowship and to churches with Cooking For Christ ministries, my body and soul were in need of rest and rejuvenation.  Life is filled with seasons, and thankfully God has given me a season of rest over the summer.  I took a “wee break” from: writing on the website, speaking, and working with students.  This season of rest has been so good for me spiritually, physically and mentally.  I have been learning more and more of the dependence that I have on God.

During this second half of the summer, I am praying, preparing lessons and planning outreach events.  I would greatly appreciate your prayers for these activities as I desire to be filled up with the Holy Spirit so I can pour out God’s truth to the women I will be working with. 

 Adventures in Ireland

A week of exploring the beautiful coastline of the third-largest island in Europe

Some good friends of ours lent us their car for a week so we could drive to the South.

“You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.”  Nehemiah 9:6

How beautiful is this beach?!!!  We got to swim in the Atlantic ocean here at the beach on the Dingle Penisula!

One day we decided to have a picnic.  From a distance we saw a beautiful stone church, so we decided to have our picnic there.  Little did we know, that was the church were W.B. Yeats’ grave was located.  Poems of the past from school days came to my mind…

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”  Revelation 4:11
