seeking rest...

I want to be here.

My soul finds rest in God alone.

My salvation comes from Him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation;

Psalm 62:1,2

I am so tired


struggling to find balance again.

Father God, please be with Rene' just now. Calm her spirit and help her to rest in You, following the example of Your breathing, Your rhythm, Your simplicity. Help her to drink from Your stream like the deer that panteth for the living water. Bless her with Your holy presence. Amen <><

I hope you find your balance soon! I am right around your age and I find this to be sort of a constant feeling....that I'm struggling to "do it all" like I used to...perhaps its part of being pre-menopausal! I wish you all the best! Happy Mother's Day weekend!

I do hope you can find what you need to help find balance... You know I have also been struggling with certain issues... Keeping the faith can sometimes be challenging and each year we add a candle on our cake makes for wisdom but seems we still struggle for more .... I would like to say I hope you enoy the weekend and find peace and rest and come by a treasure....

What a beautiful setting to rest in! I pray that you will get the rest you so need, we are all in this together at this time in our lives it seems, maybe it is The Lord's way of gently reminding us to slow down and enjoy life more, time to be a little lazy after all of the years of raising children and doing it all at warp speed!!! I hope you have a wonderfully Blessed Mother's Day!

Hi Rene'!
I can see why you're tired, your barn sale looked fabulous! What an amazing amount of work and time. Wow, sure wish I could have been there. I pray you'll be able to catch up on your rest. Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Even though you are so tired and trying to find balance, you are still sharing beauty with all of us. Thank you for adding exquisitely beautiful photos with us. Happy Mother's Day to you.

I hope you continue to rest and reflect and find the balance you seek...the Lord will surely provide it...He has rest and peace in abundance to share with you..

Hope your Mother's Day was great...and relaxing! Take care...
