STOP AND THINK – There’s absolutely no reason to be rushed along with the rush. (Robert Frost, renowned American poet)

Well, the holiday rush is almost over—just one more holiday next week. We talk about “rush hour” to and from work. Life often seems to be one big rush, doesn’t it? But, it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, we’d be much better off physically, mentally, and emotionally, if we’d slow down, avoid the rush, enjoy some rest, and recharge our inner batteries.

Jesus: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me . . . and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29)
