My dad sent me this as an e/m this morning…talk about perfect timing.
Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while. Mark 6.31
“How often do I travel the quiet road with Jesus? Do I exit the fast lane of my responsibilities and concerns to focus my attention on Him for a time each day?”
After Jesus’ disciples completed a demanding period of ministry, He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while” (Mark 6:31). Instead of a long vacation, they had only a short boat ride together before being thronged by the crowd. The disciples witnessed the compassion of the Lord and participated with Him in meeting the needs of the multitudes (vv.33-43). When the long day finally ended, Jesus sought renewal in prayer with His heavenly Father (v.46).
Jesus our Lord is always with us whether life is hectic or calm, but there is great value in taking time each day to walk the quiet road with Him. – David C. McCasland

[ok, a few words…the kids aren’t ours…we rent them from my sister every few weeks. The pic on the hay was right before I got blasted by the eldest ‘rental’ and flew backwards into the endless sea of dried fodder.]
fyi: going from a full bed to a queen bed is like going from a Geo Metro in Portsmouth, Ohio to a Lincoln Navigator in NYC.
It’s been a while since my last heart-to-heart design post…
Here are my fond findings of late [click the pics for purchasing info]:
