Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out … ? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
Matthew 11:28-30, The Message
Just thought I’d share this lovely passage of Scripture, a great reminder for all of us today, the day of rest. It’s going to be a nice, slow day here at the ranch and I intend to soak in every single minute of it, in very comfy clothes and nursing an extra cup (or two) of hazelnut coffee. There’s nothing better than taking the time to be refreshed and renewed before a new week begins, don’t you agree?
How are you being intentional about rest and self-care today?
Wishing all of us a fabulous time spent in the “unforced rhythms of grace” today. Happy Sunday!

The pictures above were taken in Historic Downtown Northville last weekend. It’s a lovely little town with lots of charm. I really enjoyed strolling the city streets and finding some new places to visit in the future! Highly recommend a stop if you’ve never been there before!
