"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exhalted among the nations, I will be exhalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10
This sculpture stands near the entrance of a park in a nearby city. Metal man is rushing so much that he is losing the papers from his briefcase and his coffee is spilling. And, oh dear, he is running about so much that he has actually lost his head! I have some days like that. When I have to rush too much, I feel like I am losing my head. And maybe the artist, Rob Tarbell, knew the feeling. I'm so glad that on Sunday I have a good reason to be lazy!
"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work...For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy." Exodus 20
