He Is Rest

When I wrote that last post I was feeling pretty discouraged and stressed. But, as one of you sweet girlies wrote in your comments, He is rest. When you cannot find it anywhere else, you can find your rest in Him. I've been meditating on these two verses, and they have really helped.


"From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I." Ps 61:2
"Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28


This past week it was good to just take a step back, turn off the phone, close out my email, let the things that are truly important rise to the top and the others sift to the bottom, and talk some things out with Jesus.  I appreciate so very much your prayers and love. I felt it. My vay-cay is over and we are again chuggin' right along. I'm doing good, no worries!


But lest you think I was sitting around meditating all week, here's a quick recap:

We picked more strawberries and got them "put up."


I hired a neighbor girl to babysit for two glorious hours so I could escape to Goodwill, where I got some BIG THINGS which you will hear about in future posts, and some little things that thrilled my 
3-year-old.


Jarrod and I attacked the nightmare that is our garage and got some random piles of crap stuff moved around. After I finish painting the BIG THINGS from Goodwill we will finish putting the rest of it away and get some cupboards installed for organizing. It's going to be glorious. 

We played in the sprinkler out front while Daddy worked in the garage.







Until one of the sprinkler heads blew off like the launching of a rocket and we had a geiser in the front yard. That sort of put an end to sprinkler time, and the shrieks were heard round the world. 



I had some good chats with Rowan at bedtime. His prayers usually involve spiders and/or potty gum. Nothing like the faith of a child to get things back in perspective.

I did some baking, because Banana Bran Muffins make everything better.


I followed my kids around with the camera and took some pictures that make me happy.





We escaped to the woods as a family yesterday, after going out to breakfast, and spent some time exploring.

 



Wow, you can get a lot done when you are resting. Love you guys!
