Sunday Scripture

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion?
Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” ~Jesus.

I found today's scripture on the {in}Courage  website I follow. It comes from Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message translation). After a week of nonstop sickness in our house, taking "a real rest" sounds pretty terrific about now. I am glad today is Sunday and I am joyful Ed is willing to stay home with two still not quite well little girls so that I can go to church and get some spiritual refreshment and encouragement!
