Happy 4th of July 2018!

Happy 4th of July!
The 4th of July is an official holiday when my work place is closed and with today being a Wednesday it feels somewhat awkward to be home. However, I'm not complaining-ha ha. I'm going to enjoy this mid-week break of rest.
 For some, I realize it may not be a day of rest. Perhaps you are dealing with things that will not give you rest. Perhaps having a day off from work is not an option. For all these things my heart goes out to you. I do understand to some degree what it is like not to be able to rest. When I'm so overcome with grief from the loss of my son Joe and the loss of my husband, Paul rest seems so far away.  At those times all I can do is take one moment at a time.  Those words may sound so ordinary; however, those words came to life for me when dealing with grief.  Turning to God's Word is helpful as well in Matthew 11:28 we are told to "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest"
Today I would like to offer up a little prayer for you:
Lord, today I give you all my burdens that will not give me rest.  In Matthew 11:28 it tells us to "come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest". Lord help me to know that You will give me rest and that You are with me at all times. In Jesus name, Amen.
May you have an enjoyable 4th of July and hoping you will find some time to rest.
Thank you for visiting my small humble blog.
