There Are Different Forms Of Rest {Durango Trip 2013, Pt. 3}

Sometimes you might think the rest you crave is for ease, pampering, quiet, and a little bit of luxury. And sometimes, that's exactly what is needed. But other times, rest comes in the form of climbing mountains and braving rugged terrain... is found in a sweet little cabin you rent for it's affordability, not anticipating the blessing of it's simplicity..._DSC0096 running water and rustic amenities might feel freeing when TOO MUCH is characteristic of your everyday life.


...too much stuff, too much fuss, too much stress, too much fluff..._DSC0108

...and you find there's not much more you actually need than a sunny spot for all to gather..


...a warm meal...

...and an afternoon splitting wood with your Baba.



And, honestly, I've rarely known rest like the rest I felt watching misty clouds roll over the evening mountain tops, clearing away to reveal the most star-studded sky I have ever seen..._DSC0150

...and I felt rest, not because it is beautiful and quiet out in the dark, but because of this undeniable truth:

OUR GOD-- HE HOLDS ALL THINGS TOGETHER...THE STARS, THE MOON, THE MIST. Everything is suspended in perfect peace because He is in control.



...He delights in keeping us safely within His care; He delights in us trusting Him for it._DSC0356

Whatever rest you might long for today, know this: All true rest begins on Calvary's hill, is maintained by His loving care, and finds it fulfillment in His glory revealed.  FamYankeeGirl2013


Have a blessed Monday, friends, and rest in the simplicity of Him being enough...and being your rest today.
