Good Morning Ladies:
I hope you are enjoying the little signs of Autumn that are beginning to peek through. While I may not be putting out a full fledge blog, my heart can’t seem to let go. You are continually on my mind and in my prayers. So instead of a blog, I thought why not just share what is on my heart, the things the Lord is teaching me personally. And who knows, it may be that you too are going through some of the same things…
Today the Lord is reminding me to let go of my“expectations”and instead to rest entirely in Him. In the simplest of terms, to just “Relax and Breathe.”

Today it is beautiful outside, the air is cool and crisp. My kind of weather! I keep thinking of how I should be feeling, I should be energized, I should be raring to go! After all, I love days like today. Days where the sun is out and there’s that slight hint of Fall filling the air. Yet I’m not energized, nor am I motivated. Nope, I am just plain old tired. I woke up needing a nap. But the worst part of feeling this way is that little voice inside my head that never misses the opportunity to scold and to reprimand me. “Suck it up, keep going!” Then, all of a sudden an overriding voice steps in, it is much stronger, much more confident than that voice of condemnation. It is a voice of authority and compassion—“relax and breathe, I’ve got this!”
“Come to me,
all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
