[my life, my blessings, my journey]

finding my rest

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." ~Matthew 11:28-30

Often I am a go-and-do-and-see kinda girl. I love taking my littles all sorts of places and I love to watch them enjoying themselves. We enjoy picnics at the park, bike rides, the zoo, playdates, the beach. But truly, I am a jammies-at-home kinda girl. When life gets a little nuts, I find myself craving my cocoon. My yoga pants, my kids in their jammies til noon (or sometimes all day)and the quiet routine of home. It's where I feel most like myself and where I find my rest. I find myself seeking and listening for the whispers of my God. And His answer is always the same when I am feeling a little anxious, overburdened or run down - come to me and find your rest.
