Rest


start:

Rest.
I've spent thee entire day outdoors til past dark again; - weed eating, mowing and tilling the garden, one of the corn patches,   and a new blackberry bed that I transplanted a whole mess of  canes to. ... Rest- it's  the perfect word to end this day with; after a long hot shower of course.  I don't think I've been this tuckered out since last Summer. 

To me; when I think of true rest;  ..... it's always after something stressful, or exerting.
Like hiking  to the near edge of a bluff near Mt Magazine  and sitting cross-legged looking out over the Ozarks.  I'm breathing hard by this point and find a perfect boulder to perch on.   There's  so much air to breathe deep... and it all makes me remember just how big my God is.... that's rest.  Right in Him. 

stop.

There are a lot of Christians that have not yet learned to rest in Christ. We must stop struggling and rest in the cross of Christ.. I love this post.. I too have been out side today and it did more for my inside than my outside.......... There is just something about the warmth of the son and the burn of muscles not used since last fall.......... Love being back to the blog.........

You are a busy wee bumblebee with the warmth in the air and spring round the corner. Blessings and bunny hugs my friend.

Hi Lea-Coming here from FMF. Good job on this! And it's so true, isn't it, the moment we sit down and rest is the real moment we rest in Him.

Yes...I am one of those Christians who is struggling to rest....so this post was a timely reminder-thank you dearheart.
Not sure if you got my email about the tree you wondered about at my blog-it's an arborvitae. They are nice-never need pruning though they look like they have been meticulously trimmed.
Love you dear.
