So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God,
for whoever has entered God’s rest
has also rested from his works as God did from his.
Let us therefore strive to enter that rest,
so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.
Hebrews 4:9-11 ESV

As we wind down from one season before diving into the next, we pray that you have a moment (or more!) of rest this Labor Day weekend.

    I strive to do a lot of things, but I love the part about “strive to enter that rest”. Thank you for the reminder and for all you do to encourage all of us. May you enjoy some good rest as well!

    Thank you for helping us transition from one season to the next! But where did the summer go?

    I’m sharing a wonderful Psalm … and a beautiful photo taken by the woman who’s given Creekside Ministries a home since 2007

    God is good!

    Amen amen and amen.

    “For everything there is a time, and a season.” Ecc 3:1
    Sabbath rest can come at any time or day—it is a time to still our labors and rest in the Lord.

    As I go from a semi-busy season at work to a full-bore busy season–I truly needed this long weekend. God is soo good to know when we need to stop & take a Sabbath rest.

    This weekend I have napped a lot & just rested, watched a little TV & gotten a few chores done. It feels absolutely wonderful & I feel a bit refreshed!

    I plan to get ‘rest’ this weekend by preparing to give the Children’s sermon for next Sunday! The title is “Some of my favorite things!” I will also visit a friend in the hospital who had to have emergency surgery! OUCH!

    Soon schools will be back and my substitute job already called me for two jobs. I want to go back to the classroom and at the same time concerned with how I am dealing with my grandson’s daily routine. Two different times between my work places and his elementary school. I wonder about homework. This Labor Day will be a time to regroup and gathering arrangements for the next school year. Lord, I need you.

    I love this verse, and it was appropriate for me because I had a rare weekend, with NOTHING planned! So wonderful for the soul…

    This picture reminded me so much of my recent mission trip to Trinidad! My friend and I found two hammocks tucked away on a quiet porch. The owner offered them to us. Almost immediately I was dozing off in the soft quiet twilight. That was rest!
