True Rest - Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Hope everyone had a blessed Easter we call it Resurrection Sunday here! So glad to serve our risen Savior!  Had a lovely service at church, then a wonderful dinner at our daughter's house with all our kids and grandkids.

I love the Scripture art in our challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. (Matthew 11:28) It's more than the pretty style of the font but the meaning of the Scripture.  Who wants rest? (my hand is waving high) Sometimes life seems to get so complicated and distractions become the norm in our busy lives.  It should not be however, especially if we are a child of the Most High God!  We need to take that one important step in obedience to the Lord as He says, "Come unto Me," it truly is that simple.  Come, sit at the feet of Jesus, just like Mary (the sister of Martha and Lazarus). It's the "needful" thing for us to do.  Not only will we find sweet rest for our souls but we can find peace there too!  So if life's cares are getting too burdensome, perhaps your focus is in the wrong direction.  Maybe it's time to take "time out" and sit at the Good Shepherd's feet and receive His rest.
