I’ve been thinking about that tree image a lot — that tree that Jesus showed me I am for others. And that tree, in my mind’s eye, has a number of great big boughs and branches, each one carrying a great, big resting place on the end of its arm.
There’s support there. Shade. Nesting space. A place to rest.
And it’s made me wonder about you:
Where are your places of rest?
We can find rest in physical ways — through naps, daydreams, “nothing” times, reading, movies, gardening, cooking, lounging by the pool, and other relaxing activities we love.
We can also find rest inside ourselves — an internal posture that creates a space for peace and goes with us everywhere.
Do you have places of rest?
Have you found ways to access that interior peace?
