~ Matthew 11:28-30
I'm learning a pretty valuable lesson this weekend. Yeah, you need to come to Him...get away with Him and recover your life. But that doesn't always mean being just you and Him...most times it means exactly the opposite. This weekend, He is showing me that if I am truly attentive to my surroundings and to what the promptings of my heart, then I will know exactly where to go to find Him and take a rest. Yes, it meant completely getting away from my regular surroundings, but we are together as a family and resting, because we have simply broke up the routine of what usually goes on at home.
I was talking with someone near the end of the week, about the fact that much of this life for me continues to be a huge learning process and probably always will. I have learned more about myself the past year than I knew for many years before that. It comes in spurts and a variety of ways and degrees...never a dull moment and always some very interesting findings.
The lovely weather changes are playing havoc with me...I thought I had a cold, but after doing some weeding with my 'lil sis for a while, I'm wondering if it's not allergies that I'm battling. So I'm off to rest a little...listen to some music and read in my Bible. Then back out to spend some time with my family and begin to explore more deeply living life freer and lighter!
