A rest is equally important as a musical note. Music needs a pause for aesthetic functions and other reasons.
𝗪𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗲 𝗥𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗶𝗻 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰
The whole rest or semibreve rest is a period of silence that corresponds in time value to a whole note.
It is drawn as a small rectangle that hangs off the fourth line on the musical staff and its height is half the distance between the lines. Others call it the upside down hat.
Is your life moving pretty fast though the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt in almost everything?
The pandemic forced companies to retrench their employees. Many events were cancelled or postponed. Both young and old must adjust to the online classes and work from home set up.
In this new normal, it’s undeniable that we are even more preoccupied. When you leave home, you need to plan everything that you need to do and you must bring your new daily must haves- a face mask, face shield and hand sanitizer. When will this restlessness ever end? Are you waiting for travel bans to be lifted so you can go for a vacation?
𝗥𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘁’𝘀 𝗙𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗚𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗻
𝗜𝗳 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱𝘀 𝗮 𝘄𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁, 𝗵𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘀 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝗶𝘁 𝘁𝗼𝗼. Your time to sleep everyday may not be enough to fully recover from the physical, mental, and even emotional exhaustion. That’s why God created the Sabbath so men can experience total rest. While it is true that we need to go on vacations, you can also enjoy the Sabbath rest that’s freely given. It gives the 𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗲 that helps you reconnect with God. As a result, it gives 𝗷𝗼𝘆 that’s never fleeting. It revitalizes you and helps you face a new week with enthusiasm. It gives a replenishment that helps you stay focused and productive in the coming days. In Genesis 2: 2-3, God ended His work and He rested on the the seventh day.
In a 4/4 time signature, the whole rest means silence for the entire measure. In a week, the Sabbath means the entire day of silence from anything that perplexes your mind.
May you experience true rest today!
