Blog Your Blessings Sunday #15

In trying to choose among my blessings this week, I decided on "REST."
Whether we are taking a break from work or play, we all need rest. Even God rested on the 7th day. (Genesis) It wasn't because He was tired -- after all He is God! It showed completeness to his creating.
God knows we need rest to restore us. Strength is exhibited in quietness. . . when we are quiet, we can listen to God and hear His voice and become strong again because we know His love.
What a more restful place to listen to God while we "rest in His promises". . . the Columbia River at sunset on a beautifully constructed bench where we can take the time to think of our daily blessings!
