Alright, everybody. Here’s your goal for the day: go back to sleep. January 3 is the annual Festival of Sleep Day. No one seems to know how this primarily American holiday began, but we all know how to celebrate it. Sleep in, take a nap, go to bed early, or at least enjoy your comfiest pajamas for as long as possible.
I could send you all to Proverbs 6:6-11 for a little bit of going to the ant, you sluggard. Some days we all really need that, but in honor of the Festival of Sleep, let’s read something more restful. Psalm 62, verses 5-6 (NIV):
“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
my hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.”
