  1. Laura, I’m so thankful to have found your words this morning. Often my best laid plans are de-railed by a phone call or a jolt from memory about something I’ve forgotten to do . . .
    We do live in chaos, but your story encourages me that Jesus is there with a supply of peace to carry me through the day’s offering.

  2. Laura,

    This world is crazy busy. The noise & constant clamor for our attention can easily drown out God’s still small voice. We become worn out women running around doing all these “things & keeping up with the latest news. Priscilla Shirer in her study “Breath” states “we get bound by taskmsters. They are good things God allows us to enjoy but they exert to much control over our lives.” God freed us from slavery of sin to enjoy Sabbath rest. This culture says the busier the better. Taking a complete day of Rest-resting in God is being lazy. Genesis 2:2 states God rested on the seventh day from all His work. If He needed rest then how much more do we? It’s no wonder we have so many illnesses out there. Our hearts & souls are craving Sabbath. No one seems willing to slow down & enjoy a day of quiet tranquility. Let’s all take a Sabbath Rest Shabbat Shalom.

    Blessings 🙂

  3. In college I regularly practiced Sabbath, and I’ve missed it ever since. Thanks for the encouragement to return to the peace of sabbath even in the chaos of family life!
