Easter Monday

Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Happy Easter! I hope your day was filled with joy and hope as the resurrection of Jesus was celebrated. Your Easter may have included that kind of celebration or you may have simply had a beautiful day of fun with family and friends.

Last week’s video message was that each Monday offers us a new beginning – a new start. Today is called Easter Monday. Its purpose is to give people time for rest and reflection. Even though that sounds inviting and important, typically it’s not observed here in the West. But what could it look like if we did?

How do you rest? For some of us it’s important to literally slow down our bodies, eat healthy food and get extra sleep. For others rest includes doing a favorite activity that is so enjoyable, it renews the soul.

How do you reflect? Some may write their feelings, thoughts, hopes and dreams. Others may ask themselves a question and dig deep to think it through. Some may invite others to discuss a topic that has been on their minds.

This Easter Monday, I encourage you to set some time aside for rest and reflection – whatever that means to you and whatever works for you. Your day may have already started and there just isn’t time for it. That’s ok. Take care of yourself by setting an appointment for a time in the near future to rest and reflect. In the comments, feel free to share how you do this. It may give others ideas to incorporate into their lives.

Happy Monday Easter, everyone! May your rest and reflection lead you to live the way you want to be remembered!
