Burdens and Rest

Matthew Chapter 11 Verse 28

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

This verse has spoken to me in so many different ways lately. In these tough economic times it is a Blessing to know when we are faced with so many difficult decisions to make Our Lord is there.

Lay your burdens at his feet he will give you rest.

I am editing this post to ask for your prayers for my friend's daughter. Her name is Kim and she is in the hospital on a ventilator. She is on it 80 percent. She has two young children. Please Pray for them all!!!

This is such a reassuring Scripture! God really is the kindest person we will ever know. HE IS SO KIND! And, He will not leave us or forsake us—even in these troubled times.

Good word, Mary! And, I love your photo!

I will pray for Kim, too.
