Excellent imagery! I sat in your "Feminar" learning why God's Fourth Commandment helps me to truly rest in Him. I was delighted to read this. Thank you.
Thank you for all you had to say on resting with Lord.

God Bless.

Wonderful article on not only entering into the peace and rest of our Lord, but remaining there, yolked with Him. It truly is a moment by moment conscious commitment and decision. You couldn't get any more on topic, however, I almost wrote mine along the same lines. Hope the judges don't think this was not imaginative enough. It is a very pertinent and needed message today. Good work.
This is an interesting piece. You make some great points and I'm sure many can truly relate to that.

I noticed two little things. First I think you meant claim not clam (though it did make me smile as i pictured a giant clam telling her to take it easy.)
This next thing is something I only noticed because I was just reading a writer's guideline about how the word however sounds better in the middle like this: Upon consideration of the experienced state of "rest," we know, however, that it has nothing to do with activity or inactivity.
I'm not sure which I think flows better but I thought I would share my lesson about transitioning.

I do, however, think you made some great points. I had never thought about rest in this way. I also enjoyed your MC--though at first it seemed to be Rosemary, but then you switched to first person (I) then back to third again(she)--I thought she felt real and I enjoyed her musings. I think you did a great job of tackling the topic and giving the reader something to ponder.
