Resting Place

If I forget, yet God remembers.
If these hands of mine cease from their clinging,
yet the hands divine hold me so firmly
I cannot fall.
And if sometimes I am too tired to call for Him to help me,

then He reads the prayer unspoken in my heart
and lifts my care.

~Robert Browning~

Yes---we all need that special resting place in our lives... Whether we sit and talk to God--or whether we just listen to God and watch God all around us, that resting place is very important.

I am trying to get lots of rest this week ---and it's hard not to get up and get busy!!!!!! ha

Hugs,
Betsy

A side of Robert Browning (if indeed the poet) that I didn't know! And what a beautiful resting place you've pictured, Glenda...

Glenda,
Thanks for the beautiful song. What a blessing to my heart and my soul. All I could do was just close my eyes, listen to the song, and praise the Lord. Thanks! I really needed that today.

A beautiful place of rest! Don't you wish you could stay there all day?

But we can in our hearts.
