Don't Rock the Boat...

If you have never rested in a hammock, this is a post you should read.   My husband and son, Garrett put the new hammock up this week. I had no intention of going near it because I assumed it wouldn't be comfortable. Well, today the two of them persuaded me to try it out for just five minutes. I was quite reluctant, but finally said, okay.   I scrambled into the thing, and discovered I was delighted. I was enchanted. I laughed for how truly relaxing it was. I didn't want to get out of it! This is my new place to unwind.
Garrett was so happy I had said yes. He climbed around and had the thing swinging and swaying.
If you do not have a hammock, you may want to go get one. I have no regrets for passing the time in one of these. Besides, it's Sunday, our day of rest. Sometimes I forget to rest. It's go, go, go all the time. This morning we all moved our cattle from one field to another, then, we went to church, had lunch, rested in hammock, then I visited my parents while I pitted pie cherries. I rested today and I praise God for giving me rest. I hope you were able to relax today. Bless you all today, Kathi
"It will be a sign between me and the Israelites forever, for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.’”Exodus 31:17

"A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed." Proverbs 11:25

That is so cool! I have always wanted one but we don't have a shady spot for one yet.
