Rest & Candy = Good or if you can’t rest, just eat candy – What?
Aaaaaah! I just want to take a nap!
I just read a bit from Hebrews chapters 3 & 4 about how some can’t enter God’s rest because they don’t believe. (I think it’s often that I don’t truly believe that God is really that good, that His idea of rest is messed up or something; and, it’s more often that I just don’t think of rest.) And then the writer tells us to FEAR falling short of His rest, and he tells us to LABOR / WORK / BE DILIGENT to rest in Him. It flat out instructs us to work at resting.
Final, totally unrelated thought: The best kids in my house right now are the Sour Patch Kids in my secret candy stash. Oh, yes, I eat way more candy than I will ever let my kids eat, which of course means that they will be huge candy eaters. I remember very often asking Mama what she was eating, and she would stop chewing and throw out some ventriloquist’s voice that said “nothing.” Eventually Erin and I found her spots. There were usually the latest M&M trends under her bed! Remember when they reintroduced red M&Ms? Definitely respond if you do. I still save the red ones for last because they are the most special.
