So What Do You Do All Day when You Rest?

On Monday, and Thursday I rest. I am busy at the church on both of these days, and church can wear me out. There is an excitement about being with God’s people. There is a responsibility. I take it seriously. I pray for the outcome of the meetings, and for myself, that I will show Christ is living in me.

So what do I do all day when I rest? I have this hobby. I read my Bible through in the year, and I try to read it two, or, three times. I read the whole Bible.

God says to hide it in your heart, and I do. It takes time to read through the Bible. I read it, and study it at the same time. I keep a notebook handy, to write down what I have gotten out of the Bible. I write down pertinent verses. They are jewels that I find as I read. It is a challenge to finish the Bible several times in a year, but this is my 9th time in trying to finish what I started.

Last time took one and a year and a half. I slowed down to study. The Old Testament is interesting, and it is longer. I still read until I have to stop. Resting to me means to get into the Presence of God and stay there all day. I work around the house after I rest, but reading the Word. I don’t have to hurry.

I love to paint,write,make up my own recipes, and sing. I write poetry, songs, and books. I began to paint, because my sister left me art supplies, and I needed to use them. She encouraged anyone to paint.Then she died of cancer. I began to paint more, because I was grieving over her death. As I painted I came out of my gloom, and grief. She was a wonderful, artist. I continue to paint. Recently I have been writing my, fourth, novel. It is about life for a couple who live in a small, town. There is one, adventure after another, in this book. I make no apology for writing Christian novels. I believe there is an audience for Christian literature that is written in this century! My prayer is that after reading it, people will want to read the Word of God, and commit to Christ. I pray over the text, and type. My son encouraged me to join Word Press.com, and he set up my first blog which we called Rubies Corner's Blog. I have other blogs which I have left open, but the largest, blog at this point is Rubies Corner's Blog. My book is being written on rubiesdonovels which is another blog. I am currently writing my fourth, book.. I hope to publish eventually. I am a retired school teacher. My husband is pastor of Christ Fellowship in Ringgold, Georgia. We have been there over thirty, years. I write about my church, and about life from a Christian, perspective as a pastor's wife. Life has become very, interesting, and busy since I resigned from my last job. I consider myself retired, but I paint frequently. My Gravatar shows one, painting that I did several years ago. The plant cost over thirty dollars. I painted on this one for a while. I have another site that has more art work. It is on deviantArt under RSC3. I have over 200 drawings there. Some were finished on the computer with the mouse. Enjoy.
