Hearing my Mom on the phone go through these ups and downs is awful.  She made us both laugh last night.  I can’t hardly understand her, they have her on medications.  I told her she sounded as high as a kite, she said, yeah, like you!  “Mom!  I don’t do that any more.”  We both laughed but she had to stop, she can’t laugh without it taking her breathe.  Everyday it seems another decision is being made and it’s different from the one before.  

As I was sitting, thinking about what is about to take place over the next several weeks, I realized I had not talked with  God about much.  As always, I took the burden on myself and placed it on my shoulders with everything else I put up there, weighing me down.  Then I heard those words:

Matthew 11:28“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

It’s my personality to take it on.  Some of the hardest things I have had to learn is discernment, delegating, humbleness, rest.  I am usually a go getter.  To allow others to help, blesses them and me.  That attitude of if I don’t do it it won’t get done, or done right, is very selfish, prideful small minded.  It’s a ME attitude.  It’s not about me.  That’s even harder to swallow.  Especially when you have been raised and the world tells you it is.  

Just got to hook up with the Most Holy One, hang out, rely on, depend on, trust in Him.

Psalm 91

 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High 
       will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 

 2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, 
       my God, in whom I trust.”

 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare 
       and from the deadly pestilence.

Thank You God, for being my everything.

SIDE NOTE:  So much going on I forgot to take photos of those chairs I worked on, take my word, they look great.  I am working on a big project full of decorative finishes and Trompe L’oeil.  I’ll post later some designs.

Pray and bless someone today!
