THE GIFT OF REST

Professor Donald Francis Toney often said to his students at Edinburgh that in music the rests are just as important as the notes. At first that appears to be an exaggeration, but musicians tell me that a choral or orchestra director soon learns that without careful attention to pause, the music will lose much of its beauty. So in the music of life, the rests must be written into the score. That's the way we keep coming in trust to God. We deliberately wait on the Lord to receive the gift of [rest].
