Do you know I have always been my own coach and I push myself? But I never knew how to unwind and just rest. I would push myself to exhaustion; I guess sometimes I still do, based upon what happened yesterday. 🙂
But about a year ago I started to take a day of rest. I adopted Saturdays as my day of rest. It is my day to do whatever I want, I don’t serve others on this day. I don’t cook and if I want to stay in bed and watch TV that is what I do.
In the beginning my family would continue to ask me what was for dinner and I would have to remind them that it is Saturday, my day of rest. Now, my children never starve, my two boys are old enough to cook for themselves and I still take care of my little one. But it is really a day of rest for me. I have found that it is a much-needed rest. Sometimes I get bored and get tempted to open my laptop but I don’t.
When I wake up Sunday morning, I am refreshed and ready to begin my new week. I get my word in the morning from my Pastor and then I go about my day to prepare for the upcoming week. Sunday is a big cooking day for me. I always like to have a nice dinner on Sundays and I bake the kids a treat.
Take a day of rest and refresh yourself, God did. You are not going to lose anything by taking a day of rest.
See you on day seven.
