I am trying to catch up. Oh, so far behind for my SoCS offered by Linda G. Hill. She challenges us with using the word “rest” for a bit of unplanned thoughts. I would like to say I got some rest today; you know the kind where you go lie down for a while.

I didn’t get that, but I did get to do a lot of things that I like to do. That is what I enjoy more than the lie down kind. I much prefer the active kind of rest. Making a difference in my world for the remaining time I am in it? That’s satisfying.

I don’t think anyone can rest who does not have a satisfied mind. I have not spend much time with a worried mind. Sometimes? Yes. That’s no fun.

I’m playing around with a thought. I wonder how many times I can use rest in one sentence, still making the thought concise and interesting. I’ll try.

I will rest a bit with my arm resting on the armrest while I eat the rest of my apple.

That’s it, Friends, four times with different meanings in a concise sentence. Interesting? I don’t know.


Thanks, Linda, for the mind relaxer. https://lindaghill.com/2022/02/25/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-feb-26-2022/

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    A rest of any sort is better than arrest for any reason!

    Yes, that variety of “rests” is interesting. The thought of active rest intrigues me. I wonder how the Commandment to rest on the Sabbath could be approached in a spirit of active rest. J.

      A spirit of active rest? It’s a thought worth thinking. I think that is what I have referred to previously as focused worship. All thoughts on Jesus, not on how I am “doing” it.
