Happy Labor Day!

It is Labor day weekend and for the first time ... well, ever, we were able to spend it as a family! What a blessing! The kids are growing up so fast and time seems to be flying by. We have 5 kids and that equals one busy life. Between soccer, homework, Girl Scouts, family and church we are constantly on the move and find little time to rest. That is why I have chosen this weeks verse.....

Matthew 11:28-30 (King James Version)

28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Doesn't that sound wonderful? My favorite part is the "rest unto your souls" - beautiful!

  1. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

    -That's my favorite scripture from today. And Casting Crowns uses it in one of their songs I think? Love it.

  2. That is one of my favorite scriptures! So comforting.
