Resting Places

Resting doneI am learning many things on the journey that I am on. I have cancer, but I don’t want it to be a downer. I like to say my name is Darlene,not cancer.  I am  now experiencing exhaustion .  I am one who really never sat down too much, and now I find my self getting so weak, I have to lay down and rest.  I fought it and had fear about it, and finally went to the Lord about it.  Throughout the Bible there is teaching on REST.  There are so many things that steal our rest,  and it seems its one of the first things man gives up in stressful times.    The Lord says in Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour & are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and you shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my  burden is light” many of us are carrying heavy burdens.  Whats heavy to one person might not be heavy to another.   No matter wat we are carrying the Lord is there to give rest to our soul.  Take the yoke that the Lord provides and learn from him.  His yoke is easy and his burden is light. Don’t try to figure it all out or try to do it yourself.  Rest and wait patiently  for Him.  He has it all under control.  Don’t ever fight taking a rest.  It is good for your soul!

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
