“Come and rest a little,” Jesus invites. Exactly what would that look like in my life this first weekend of February 2015?  It would be easy (at least in my imagination) to hop on a plane and “get out of town.” But of course I would still be the same “me” once I arrived…wherever the “there” might be.

Imagine there is another way to view Jesus’ invitation…in a place not bound by time and space. What if Jesus is inviting me to “come away”—to bring my heart in synch with Jesus’ heart? And once I’m there…what needs and hopes arise in my heart? What words do I find to speak? Can I just slow down and rest…letting Jesus take the lead?

Come, my Jesus!
