Dinner Time Nap

This is repost from way back,way at then end of December 2007. This sweet little girl below is now going on four. I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot lately-abiding in Christ-and thought it was a great reminder.
Isn't this sweet, Aida was so tired this night. We've been having naptime battles all week: Cayden not wanting to sleep and then waking Aida up, Cayden finally falling asleep after a long struggle and then Aida not able to go back to sleep. It's been rough and has led to two tired girls and one worn out mama-wish I could just lay my head down wherever and whenever. Lucky for her-she got to go bed at 6:30 that night and her sister let her sleep when she went to bed. Thank goodness for just a bit of peace.
Isn't it funny how we sometimes fight the very thing that is so good for us? Whether it's rest or exercise or our relationship with God, we come up with excuses or throw fits when it gets down to getting it done. I don't want to be this way-Lord help me make time for you, it is vital for my peace and my attitude. When I make time to read the Word and pray I am in such a better state of mind-he is so good for me. During this crazy season I need that time more than ever so I can be my best for him and the people he's placed around me. Today I want to remind myself not to neglect that vital link.
I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5

  2. Love that verse - I just started re-reading "The Secrets of the Vine" that centers around that verse this week for the umpteenth time - It's a breath of fresh air to bask in that truth.

    Have you read it?

  3. Love that photo...still have it on our frig!
    As I look at it again, reminds me of how we "can both lie down in peace and sleep, for the Lord sustains us."
