The Life & Times of Mommiehood

Here I am finding my way through uncharted waters.

rest

well, stephan’s napping so i have a brief moment before i need to start the muffins i’m making for him to enjoy tonight with our family birthday celebration. he’s been falling asleep better on his own since last week. i’m so thankful nappytime and bedtime are less stressful. now we just need to figure out how to transfer what he’s learned about putting himself to sleep to when we wakes up in the middle of the night so he can fall back to sleep on his own, without parental intervention.

anywho, all this has got me thinking … who knows what this word really means and how we can actually achieve it? unfortunately i’m a worrier and that means if i’m not stressed about one thing i’ll quickly find another to fill it’s place. the Bible talks about resting in Christ. i have no idea how to do that. seems like a whole different concept than sleep. should we be able to rest during the day … when we are awake? if so i’m pretty clueless. maybe i get a glimmer of this when i’m wrapped up in a novel but that’s because i’m in the middle of someone else’s life and not my own. maybe my life is stressful and seeming to fall apart in some areas because God is trying to teach me to rest in Him. will i ever learn??

My husband Andrew and I have been married for fourteen years and love living in Colorado! Eight years ago I became a mommie to an awesome little boy and four years ago to my precious little girl. The past few years have been a whirlwind.

One thought on “rest

  1. learning to rest in Christ is definitely a tough one. i think it’s a cultural thing as well as just plain being human. i find that being around an environment that i find relaxing helps even though my mind tends to go a million miles an hour sometimes. i’m sure being a mom makes it even harder!

    thanks for your comment on my blog. i’m curious as to how you found it!!! and i replied and clarified. have a wonderful day.
