Breathing


In busy, crazy mess,

Days and days with not enough rest,

I need a moment,

Just a moment

To breathe.

Really, really breathe.

Matthew 11:28-30

New International Version (NIV)
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
