In the stillness of winter, the earth is resting. The earth is getting ready for the new life that is yet to come. The flowers and trees will bloom, plants will grow to yield us food. The earth will wake up from its rest, and give us new life. It has a job to feed us, and give us air to breathe.
We can learn to do the same as the earth, and rest. Listen to its peacefulness in the dead of winter. The earth knows best. Our souls, mind, and body all need rest, for we are at our best when we are well rested. We do not have to be constantly productive, this will wear us out. Life has something great for us to accomplish, but we are at our best when after we rest.
