Cold Is Rest

If you're at all like me, you rest very little. You work a bit too much. Your mind never stops running and you are always thinking days, weeks, months, and years in the future.

Today it is cold.

It is so cold, that everything is shut down. Schools, churches, County offices, all closed. I have a home office and it is my normal place to work. Yet, today I'm forcing myself to take a bit of a snow day.

Every once in a while we need to find down time. We need to rest. We need to try and shut down our minds and get quiet. So, I'm doing that today. I'm shutting down notifications, grabbing a book, and a cup of tea (chai if you're wondering), and I am going to rest.
