In music the term rest refers to the pause in a piece of music. It is a small space of quiet. A pause between notes. Without those pauses, those spaces, the music would simply be a lot of noise. But the small moments of silence, rest, help to create the beauty of the song. We hardly notice these spaces and yet they are an integral part of the composition of the song.
In the song of my life I also must add pauses, moments of silence, small times of rest, or my life song simply becomes a lot of noise.
My moments of rest will come in the form of small things. A quiet prayer of thanksgiving. A cup of coffee while watching the birds. Listening to a favorite song on repeat. Taking a minute to enjoy the view of the mountains from my back yard. Small pauses between the notes that make up the music of my life - integral parts of the composition of song.
