Keeping Christ in Christmas in bits and pieces
A tune to hum: “Oh rest beside the weary road…”
It Came Upon a Midnight’s Clear By Richard S. Willis 1851
Did Jesus Christ ever rest?
The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
Do you ever feel exhausted at Christmas time?
Are you tired?
Is something in your life
creating you to feel
weighted down and burdened?
Today is the day of rest.
Can you allow yourself to rest?
It is something that I have a hard time doing.
Rest is important to our souls
Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
