A Stroll in the Garden

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ― John Lubbock, The Use Of Life

“Ease your mind earth child, your expecting too much of yourself. Acceptance comes in waves and today you may be drowning but tomorrow you could conquer the entire ocean. Take each day as it comes and flow into it’s course, sometimes control isn’t the only option. Sit down, rest and re group for a while – you owe yourself that much.”― Niki Rowe

“God never asked us to meet life’s pressures and demands on our own terms or by relying upon our own strength. Nor did He demands that we win His favor by assembling an impressive portfolio of good deeds. Instead, He invites us to enter His rest.”― Charles R. Swindoll

“Listen to your soul and protect it always. When you are completely exhausted , please rest. When your soul is so tired, this is when your personal power is at the greatest risk for attacks, not only externally but internally. It is okay to take care of you, rest, get back up, and then continue to move forward.” ― Christine E. Szymanski

“A little bit of rest can go a long way.”― A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

“Summer was on the way; Jem and I awaited it with impatience. Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the tree house; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape; but most of all, summer was Dill.” —Harper Lee, To Kill A Mockingbird
