We woke up to snow this morning! Not much, but typical for Tennessee and just enough to thrill all the kids.
While it was still dark and well before 7, I heard my Big Guy rummaging around. “For the sled in the attic,” he says. Of course.
Our snow was unexpected. So was the morning with no school and no dentist.
Tonight church is cancelled and so are group violin lessons.
A day out of my control. All my plans have been changed—we have nothing to do but rest in it and enjoy.
Someone else is in control of today’s schedule.
It is restful. It is joyous.
Rest is often found in unexpected places and accompanied by unexpected joy.
“There remains therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. 11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest …” Hebrews 4:9–10
