Have you ever been working and got tired to the point that you cannot concentrate? Jesus invited the apostles to rest a bit. He teaches us that it is important to work but it is also important to rest.
➢ Spread a carpet and lay it on with a cushion underneath your head for comfort, and try to spend a bit of time in silence. If a thought pops up let it go.
➢ Try and stay for two minutes. You can also use a piece of two-minute music to keep track of time.
➢ When you get back up, say a prayer to praise God for the beautiful life we have balanced with work and rest.
