God created work, and it was meant to be good. But we often get so caught up with what we are doing that we race from one task to the next, forgetting how God had also instituted rest (Genesis 2:2-3).
About Christine E
Christine is a follower of Christ and a lover of books and good food. She is recently and happily married, learning more each day of the goodness of God. She loves to spend her days either in a good book or in the kitchen, preparing simple, filling foods that also delight the palate. Otherwise she enjoys wandering about new cities, learning a little more of the fabrics of a new place and the stories that make it up. Life is good, she insists, and each new breath is a reminder that, whatever the circumstance, God is still good.
