I was spoiled today.
This morning Dan willingly watched the girls so I could get a massage from the lovely Lindsey Lovsey (highly recommend her!). It was just what I needed this week.
This afternoon my sister played with my girls so I could run errands/get some much needed household items. It was fun to peruse the stores a little slower than I normally do.
To top it all off, Dan helped cook dinner and did dishes. He is wonderful.
In this season of life, days like these really rejuvenate me. I am an introvert so alone time refreshes my spirit.
Rest brings me joy. And reminds me that Jesus gives me rest, too. Rest in a deeper, even more needed way. The kind of rest that brings stillness to my soul.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Joy comes from this reminder. Tomorrow, my body will be tired again. But, I have rest that lasts.
