Come & Rest

Say it isn't so!...I haven't posted since January!
It's not that I haven't wanted to, life gets crazy busy.
Does anyone else use "it was a really crazy day" as an excuse to make a Starbucks run?  Just wondering...because I do that...a lot...like all the time ;)


So, when I am not taking care of two pretty girls, a handsome guy, and our cozy little home, I am at a high school teaching special education.  I try hard to balance home and work and make time for everyone and stay cheerful and upbeat and get everything done and...oh wait, I'm daydreaming again (wink).  Some days I feel like I neglect my family and some days I feel like I neglect my school work...and some days I want to neglect everything and run away...JUST kidding...I think...

And then verses like this jump out at me when I need them most, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." ~ Matthew 11:28

I'm so thankful that I am not plodding through this life all alone without any hope :)  That makes my heart happy and that helps me get through the really long and difficult days...because special education is not easy and being a mom is not easy...but they are both worth it!


May we all find rest like this ;)  ~ Have a great day!
