One Little Word ~ Rest

I took this photo in April of 2006.
Goofy & Mickey just chillin' in the Animal Kingdom.
Goofy sure looks like he's taking it easy ~ taking a little rest!
Rest ~ that my "one little word" for 2010.
I intended to spend a bit more time focusing on that word
and how it applies to me and to my life.
But I really haven't been doing that ~
because I haven't had time.
Because I haven't been resting!

I really need to rest right now.
My body is demanding that I do. So's my soul.

"And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

“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

Christ will carry the load of life’s burdens, physical and spiritual, for the believer and He will provide rest and healing for the believer. He is not stressed or bothered by the things of this world, because He is in control of this world.

I need some rest ~ physically and spiritually.
I have a couple posts scheduled but other than those I think I'll be "postless" for a week or two. But I'll still be visiting you!
And when I return I'll be closing in on my
second blogging anniversary.
That must mean a giveaway the first week or so of July!!
"Cause that's when I'll be two!

I feel like I need to revisit my word too...

I pray you make the time to rest today. Even even just for a few minutes.

Love, Regina

sorry, too many typos so I'll try again...Even God rested on the seventh day, rest is vital, if we fail to recharge we can be of little service to our Lord!
