Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:27-29 (NLT)

We are weary around here. Mark’s surgery and recovery have been much harder than we anticipated. Not only is it difficult medically and physically for Mark but also for me as I watch him suffer with continuing pain…I feel so helpless. We have a fountain in our back yard and now I keep the door open because I love to listen to the to the sound of the water splashing as it falls from one bowl to another. It is a soothing sound and reminds me of the peace and comfort that Jesus offers when we come to Him for rest. He also experienced pain and will be there for Mark. He knows the rest that I need from worry and fear and will be there for me, too. What a relief to know that I don’t have to do it all. Again, I continue on the path of trusting my Heavenly Father in all things. He will take care of us.
