The familiar psalm paints a beautiful image of sabbath rest. He (the Good Shepherd) makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.
Today marks the beginning of my summer sabbatical, a gift of time set aside for rest and restoration of the body and soul. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to seek out green pastures and find some still waters.
Jesus says, "Whoever drinks of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty again." For me, it is time to return to the well. I hope the summer will give you the opportunity to do the same, even if in smaller doses.
Blessings upon you and your summer seasons. I will hold you in prayer and I welcome your prayers. See you in September!
