Welcome to Day 31 of #write31days. Rest is the prompt word for Five Minute Friday Free Writes. How fitting that the word rest is the prompt here at the end of this challenge to write for 31 days! Click To Tweet
I’m certainly ready for a break, though I have enjoyed taking photos and writing poems.
Rest By the Stream
By the woodland stream
Sit and watch the water flow
Take some time to rest
One of my favorite places to take a break and rest is… you guessed it – out in nature. Today I was able to walk for a few minutes at Jones Gap State Park here in South Carolina.
Watching the stream and the rushing water, I just had to take a few pictures.
I love to hear the sound and to watch it tumbling over the rocks. It’s also a lovely drive on the road to the park, especially now that the leaves are changing colors.
And, of course, I love the view from my porch. It’s much the same every day, but the cloud patterns are always changing. Sometimes the wind blows gently, making the chimes ring. Other times it’s strong, forcing the trees to bend.
Find Time to Rest
I hope you find time to rest in your busy schedules.
Try to get outside to breathe fresh air.
Study the sky, watch the trees.
Be still and listen. You will be refreshed.
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
