I Will Give You Rest


Matthew 11:28
Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Dear Friends, Followers, and Fellow Bloggers,

Beginning this Sunday, I'm taking a break from all things internet until Friday, April 4th.  That is when this blog will resume its usual schedule of Friday and Tuesday posting.  I hope each and every one of you will tune back in at that time.

There are many bloggers whom I love to read and religiously leave comments on their posts.  Please understand my temporary absence in the week to come.  Know I will do my best to catch up with your wonderful inspirations when my sabbatical is over.

Simply stated, I need time.  Time to mourn, to rest, to relive memories, and to rejoice in the healing power of the Lord.  Losing my father has been tough on my entire family.  Your continued prayers and positive thoughts are treasured more than you could ever know.

So, until next Friday, may God bless you all and hold you close in His loving hands.

Love and blessings,

Martha

  2. Martha,

    You and your family remain in my prayers. For what it's worth, I think you're making a great decision to take a bit of a break from the internet. Grieving is hard work!

    Sending hugs your way.

    Love and blessings,

    1. Thank you so much, Kim. Yes, the break feels right and oh, so necessary right now. Along with losing my dad, other family members have been struggling with a time of great upheaval and change with which Danny and I have had to cope. I am simply exhausted.
      Thanks so much for your hugs, prayers and love@

  6. It takes a wise woman to know what she needs and a courageous one to actually put into practice what God has spoken to her. Enjoy, will be back after April 4th, only a few days away.
