Rest

What we all need but probably aren’t getting

God rested

I don’t know about you, but I have always loved the story of creation as recorded in the book of Genesis. Even from the time I was a child, I have been fascinated with this miraculous account of God speaking all that I can see into existence. I can vividly…
