rest + pasta salad

Happy May. May is one of my favorite months out of the year. The days are longer, the flowers are in full bloom, and Saturdays at the pool are just around the corner. Life just gets a little sweeter in the summer time. It has been a relaxed Sunday around here church this morning, a nap on the sun porch, laundry, and making a huge pasta salad. I have this terrible habit of staying so busy, going non-stop, without any restful days in between, and I can usually tell that its time for a day of rest when I cry. I cry and I cry, and I couldn’t even tell you what I’m crying about. It’s a sight to see I’m sure. Bless my husband. But today was just what I needed, much like our sermon this morning at church. We’ve been going through the book of James, and I can’t tell you how refreshing its been for my spirit. Our pastor talked about how Christianity is desperately relying on Jesus. Relying on him on the way to our jobs in the morning, relying on him in our marriages, and every single area of our life. My busy, nonstop, days would look so much different without Him. I can sleep for hours and hours, but He is really the only one who can truly give me rest. He is the one who when I’m tired whispers you can do all things through me. Thankful to be able to lay my day at His feet before I even get to work every morning. Thankful that when I cry he holds every single tear, even the tired ones and thankful for naps and sermons that are refreshing week after week.
