[1] Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
[2] And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
[3] And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. (Genesis 2)

Every year, our family goes to a condo in the Smokies that is owned by a family member. The shows, attractions, and food are a great part of the vacation, but what is even more helpful is the rest from our everyday routine. It relaxes us, and we always return to Alabama recharged and ready to take on what happens the rest of the year. Even God knew the value of rest. Once He completed the task of creating the world and what is in it, He rested on the seventh day, providing us with a good example of how to rest and relax.

Thank you, God, for rest and relaxation. Amen.
