Decompression reading

As you know, I am an avid reader. This season of my life finds me trying to decompress, destress and reprioritize what is important, and what I need to let go. I just finished reading this book, "The Rest of God; Restoring Your Soul By Restoring Sabbath."
Several good points I picked up while reading;
1. Our biggest obstacle to rest is leisure time. Think about it!
2. Generous people sanctify their time and give it away. They treat their time like a gift and not a possession and therefore, they have time in abundance.
3. Sabbath means: the day over which no other day has claim, to cease from what is necessary, and embrace what life gives.
4. Sabbath is when we listen to God, and when we listen to God we enter into His rest. If you don't enter into his rest, you will never listen.
5. A well kept Sabbath is a dress rehearsal for heaven. In finding the rest of God on earth, we prepare our hearts for the fullness of God one day.
