when work becomes rest

I have a big project going on at work. It has been dragging on for much too long but this week, things are starting to ramp up. This project involves a fair amount of uncertainty and change which will be good in the end but tough in the short term. Too many days I am unable to turn off the chatter in my head. I’ve been learning to meditate and have returned to yoga and those are good things. But yesterday I found a new way to create rest. Digging, raking, gathering, hauling, dumping. The sun was out so I headed to the garden after work. I turned the soil and pulled some pesky volunteers. I raked up sticks and pine cones and created a base for the walk way. And I found this sweet little frog. I just sat and watched him for a bit before sharing him with our tiny person. What a treasure. I was dirty and a bit sore but happy to find such lovely rest in my gardening work.

Don’t forget to come back next Tuesday and share how your word has been showing up in your life this month.
