In between everything I also pulled together 2 weeks worth of posts. Sweet Boy began a week long fall break from school on Friday so I needed to be prepared if I am not able to write the ongoing 31 Day series this next week.
I think as women we become so busy that sometimes we forget that God has commanded us to rest. He knows that in order for us to continue to run at a dizzy pace serving others we must first recharge ourselves.
And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while. For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.” ~ Mark 6:31
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ~ Matthew 11: 26 ~ 30
"Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.” Psalm 62:5
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” ~ Exodus 20: 8 ~11
