Easy Yoke

Where do I even start?

First, internet has not been worked out…we tried today, but the way we were thinking was way too expensive and didn’t make any sense. I have a system that might workout, I’m just going to feel out of touch for a little while.

We’ve moved into the apartment and I’ve had lots of visitors. I’m enjoying it, but it’s definitely keeping us busy! Things will slow down a little so I have some time to get organized and figure out a plan.

So many things have changed in the last few days, as far as what our plans were. I’ll be able to update more on that hopefully this week. I don’t want to say too much right now, because, well, we just don’t know!

With so many things in the air…I’ve been thinking about stuff a lot. The problem with me thinking is then I get all my thoughts going, and have to constantly remind myself to just give it to the Lord. Surrender it! I can get myself worked up and in a frenzy so quickly if I’m not careful. Am I the only one like this?

“Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Cale is still having a really hard time. He just wants to be home. I have lots of thoughts and questions about “home” and what he’s actually got in his mind, but I think no matter what, home is going to be better than a hospital! We just want to be in God’s perfect timing not our own.

Hopefully I’ll be getting caught up on things soon and can give you a better update!

  1. Sweet Kathleen!! I have had days when I just stand in the middle of the kitchen wondering what to do. I mean there's dishes in the sink, bathrooms to be cleaned, furniture to be dusted, etc., etc. Shouldn't be to hard to figure out. Yet, I feel so, so, tizzified. Then I, amazingly hear, (amazingly because I'm in such a whirl) the still small quiet voice, saying just any one small thing, do it. I take a deep breath, pick up the napkin off the floor, put it where it belongs. Then I stack the dishes. All of a sudden it isn't quite so bad, and I can start rolling again. In God Calling, it talks about finding peace with Father when we are rattled, then comencing with our day. It's funny how we think rushing around means we're getting things done. Somehow, I don't think Jesus "rushed" to get His Father's work done. He, first was at peace with Father, then did whatever Father had before Him. I love you, Kathleen, and rejoice with you, in Father's hand on your life. Marion

  2. You are definitely not alone in the worked up and worried category. I think we all do it at times :) Prayers going out for you!
