Pull Up A Chair....Rest A While


 Pull Up a Chair, Rest a while, and enjoy the chairs and books found on our local beach
Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.  ~Will Rogers, Autobiography, 1949


There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want.  ~Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Dr. Seuss 
How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then to rest afterward.  ~Spanish Proverb

Mark 6:32 
31And He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.) 32They went away in the boat to a secluded place by themselves.

That's quite a collection of chairs, bottles and books. It looks like some folks have been relaxing. Great quotes, I love the Dr. Seuss one. '

Very cool and colorful header shot, love it!

Lovely post. I have a chair like one of those in the first pic as extra for my balcony. (Actually I have two but one is at the House.)

All those chairs and no one sitting in them. We need to slow down and rest,as Jesus tells us to. Have a fabulous Sunday.

Great post idea! I'll take one of those chairs and a good book just not on a beach--I HATE sand, especially wet sand.

Best,
Bonnie

These are great phots. In the last photo it looks like the sun was having a pretty effect on the wall...peachy. I love your message today, but the Dr. Suess is my favorite!

I was so into reading I had to go back and look at the wonderful collection of chairs.

Loved your quotes. Have decided I need to sit and rest more myself.
