We All Need Rest

'....the Lord does not say to us, “Come unto me all ye that labor and I will give you a mile-long checklist, the completion of which is necessary in order to earn my approval and love.”
What he does say is, “come unto me all ye that labor and I will give you rest.” '

I love the opening statement. I haven't the time to follow the lonk right now ( I plan to be alseep very soon..Seminary...UGH!!)
but I will defintely check it out soon!
Hey we still need to head over the the thrift store. This week is a little crazy untilFriday....would that work for you? Do you know what time they open? I would need to be back here by 11:00 to get Matthew off the bus..or I could go about 11:30 after he gets off the bus and has some lunch. We could even make it a lunch/t-store day. Let me know if you'd like to do that!

Boy, did I need that reminder this week, or what?!?! I tend to push myself until I crash. Thanks so much for posting this. It has been another piece in the puzzle of regaining my balance. Love you, friend!
