days of rest

Seed Pods, watercolor, 5"x5"
I've been going out of my way lately to find spaces for rest.
I'm not particularly good at resting, but I feel the need to respond to Jesus.
He said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30 NIV)
Last week, I practiced resting by spending a few hours alone at a
generous friend's house. This painting came from that time.
