Beginning in the fall, Tuesday’s are known as Pajama Day around our house. Our Mondays become booked from 6:45 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., combine that with a week before of work, school, activities, life…WHEW! By Tuesday morning, I want to be comfy at home with my kiddos. So, we stay in our jammies, I make some coffee, and we hunker down to our school work and rest.
Life, as we all know, is busy. (And stressful.) Most people I know look forward to the weekend, and don’t get me wrong, those are great, but Tuesday… Tuesday is my day of rest, a.k.a Pajama Day. (I don’t apologize for it either!)
Are you allowing yourself a Pajama Day? A day to leave your pj’s on, drink more than one cup of coffee, and rest? Better yet, are we leaning on God and resting in Him?
Matthew 11:28 says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
In the midst of everything that keeps us busy throughout our week, are we remembering to rest in the One who can keep us centered, encouraged, and ready to face another day? I encourage you today, even if you’re not able to make it a pajama day, take a minute and pray and ask God to help you through your day and rest in Him when life throws you for a loop.
