I love to visit the Dayspring website.  They have wonderful FREE ecards that you can send to your favorite people. You can shop (or just browse) in their online store. There are several other websites affiliated with them ~ like (In)courage and Meet Me In The Meadow and Heart To Heart With Holley.  You can subscribe to some of them and receive beautiful devotionals in your email. 

That's where the devotional down below came from. 

Carrying any heavy loads today? 
You should read it ~ it will lift you right up!

You're Carried by Love

I rest my head on the pillow without much rest in my heart.
To-do's swirl around in my mind.
Tasks fall heavy on my shoulders.
I silently pray, "Lord, give the grace for me to carry all of this."
It seems I hear a whisper in response, "Ask instead for the grace to let Me carry you."

I once saw a child carrying a rock too big, determined to take it home. Sweat beading, little feet laboring. Then Daddy came and swooped up His girl. Joy. Giggles. Grace.
She still held the rock but it no longer weighed her down because someone held her.

I fall asleep with a smile...thoughts as light as love.
Dayspring - Heart to Heart with Holley

Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
Isaiah 46:4 NIV

I'm going to check out the website.
"You're carried by love" was beautiful. Something to keep in mind when we lay our head down at night.
