The Lake

We are visiting my brother and sister in-law at their lake cabin. We arrived yesterday after a nine hour drive through the Canadian prairie. From what I saw of the drive it was lovely, but most of the time my nose was in a book; it was a good book!
Upon arrival, we were greeted with a tour of the wonderful cabin, the beautiful lake, all the fun lake toys, and the lawn chairs.  It wasn't long before I was sitting again by the lake in a lawn chair with a nice drink watching my children play, my husband sail,and visiting with my sister in-law.
I've been in need of a rest for awhile now, more than just a day or two. As I sat by the lake enjoying the sun and the soft breeze I could hear God gently say "rest here."
I thought of Psalms 23, "You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction." verse 2.
God, Say That Again to me. Bring me to a resting place where my body can physically rest. Remind me that I can always rest my heart IN you. I love you, Jesus.
