Today bring the rest of Sabbath to someone else. It could be a mother struggling with a child or a business person trying to balance a busy schedule or a clergy person burdened with the problems of others. The situations will vary, but it could be an offer to baby sit or treating someone to a meal or just asking someone to walk in a natural, calming place. Today don’t so much worry about your own rest as extending the rest of God to all. That is what Jesus did and would do if he were you.
