"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Resting is a Good Thing....Even Nature Does It!

Nature does not hurry,
yet everything is accomplished.”
Lao Tzu

I think God was trying to get
my attention 
when I saw one black and
 one white goose swimming my way.
Aren't they pretty?
These geese stayed right in front of me the
 entire hour, as I was writing in my journal recently,
 at the park!
They played, bobbed for food, and even
 took a little nap, all the while
 I sat there enjoying the view.

They so reminded me that it really is okay to rest and
to just let yourself  BE.
I also was reminded of this when I read my friend Jen's blog post here.

(fun with making one of my flower photos look like a painting in photoshop)

Is letting yourself  rest and just BE ever
difficult for you? 

We should take a tip from this 
8 year old who said:

( find this quote stamp at inkadinkado)

I've been resting a lot this summer
because my
body and mind 
have both needed it.
I hope you are giving yourself
permission to do the same if you find
yourself needing it too.
It really is okay.

“Take rest;
a field that has
 rested gives a bountiful crop. “

Peace and  Hugs to YOU, my friends,
