Labor Day

Photobucket

Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Happy Laabor Day!

I am taking the day to go and relax at the lake with my family. This is a day that we choose not to labor because it is a day for rest. I hope that you are also able to rest today. But even if you are at work and reading this I wanted to encourage you with the above scripture. Remember that no matter where you are or what you are doing, if you go to the Lord - He will give you rest for your souls!

The rest I will find on this Monday is temporary, but the rest I have through the Lord - that is FOREVER!

God Bless!

Sonya,

Ah relaxing lake side does sound dreamy, just listening to the birds and the winds in the trees. Not sure what we will be doing today but we do pick our oldest daughter up from camp today so it will have to be somewhat local if we do.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
