When there is no rest

It's tiring isn't it?  
Being everything for everyone.  

Sometimes it feels like the whole world demands your attention
The children are sick
Your husband needs your love and support
Your mother needs someone to talk to
Your dad is not well and is struggling with his health
Your best friend's marriage is falling apart
Finances are a challenge and the budget is looking a bit thin
Your church has asked you to bake for the next ladies' meeting
And you just found out that you might need to move again.
 Take a deep breath precious mother, allow yourself to rest. Take a moment today, and just be.  
Put aside your lists, ask your man to make dinner with the children - close the door and don't be tempted out of guilt to go and take over.  Let your family serve you.  Let the Lord give you rest and allow yourself the freedom to enjoy a moment without needing to do anything for anyone.
