The lesson of creation is

“God had finished the work…  

so on the seventh day God rested”.[1]

Yes, that is the story’s message

at day’s end, the work’s done…

it’s time to be finished and rest.

Resting is not apathetic –

a time of not doing –

I must prepare to be restful.

Resting is regenerative –

a time of transforming –

Simply, I embrace restfulness.

What I do can make harmony,

but work creates havoc,

at day’s end I take time to rest.

I abide with what I create,

and God says that is good…

to abide perfectly I rest.

[1] Genesis 2:2

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
