The last few months have been all over the place for us. I have shot 13 weddings, 10 portrait sessions, and lots of in between since getting married in April. Ludwing has put in lots of hours at work, and life has become a little crazy for us both. We are so excited to head to Amelia's Island Monday morning for a short little vacation- we both need it! I am so excited to take a break from the computer, emails, and the craziness of life. I'm also excited that I get three whole days with my husband!
So, today as I am packing and cleaning, I wanted to take a moment and encourage you all to take a break. Busy is good, work is good, having a home to take care of is good.. but having silence to focus on what's important, like quiet time with the Lord, quality time with your husband or with your family, THAT is even better! Work will get done. The house will get cleaned. Make sure you take care of yourself, and take time with those you love.
The verse below was brought up during the sermon at church this morning, and again I was reminded of the importance to take the time to rest.
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, 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." -Matthew 11:28-30
