We once knew the three r’s as reading, (w)riting and (a)rithmatic. Today they stand for rest, relaxation, and renewal.
In bygone days we were admonished to practice the three r’s, and so today, with all that is going on in our world it is prudent to practice the three r’s of this day and age.
“Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest…” Matthew 11:28
“Be still (relax) and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10 (parenthesis mine)
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind…” Romans 12:2
If we close our eyes for a moment we are apt to see these new three r’s on the blackboard of our minds and renew ourselves with rest and relaxation.
Sometimes a Saturday can be a good day for just reflecting. If you’re out on the water, on a hiking trail, strolling a sandy beach, or just lazing in a hammock, let thoughts wander until suddenly there is the perfect life scene to reflect upon and then enjoy the journey. Happy Saturday
If you are stumped about how to spend your day, be like this bear and relax it away. Happy Saturday.
However you spend it, may your weekend be relaxing, fun-filled, and full of love.
It might be time to mend fences, knock down walls, be proactive in your own life; or if you’re lucky enough to not have those things on your agenda, just put yourself in this picture and have a relaxing weekend.
Yesterday evening I saw a beautiful rainbow after an all day rain. All I could think was How wonderful! I wish you a Sunday just as wonderful.
Enjoy your Sunday even if it isn’t a beautiful day; it will be beautiful in its own way.
