Resting in Him

A very wordly way of saying it is, "Slow the crap down, woman." That's if you have a sense of humor, but in all seriousness I am learning to rest in Him, not to be caught up in work or doing & going, but to be close to Jesus and enjoy the people around me. With all of that and a date night with my husband last night, I didn't get around to posting as I had planned, so here it is now.

It's been far to long since I've hanged out with my mom or since the three of us really went anywhere as having a nice yard (unlike last year) really keeps us close to home. Yesterday I decided to take my mom and son to a place called Hot Cakes in Ballard, WA. Boy am I happy that we went! That place has the best Creme Brûlée that I have tried yet. It's got this yummy thick crunchy and sugary top with a real big vanilla taste on the inside and a side of rhubarb compote. Tin tried his first milkshake and a few hours later when we got home his daddy finished it. Later we went to visit the Ballard Locks and enjoyed a nice stroll in the botanical gardens. 

It was just an awesome day yesterday. It's been so long since we did this that it was really a treat to cherish. Slowly I am coming around to just resting in Him and doing things through Him without the running around to get this and that done as it was completely draining me. I still have a lot to learn in how to be still so I can hear His voice, but that comes with practice. 

Have you found moments to just be still? At one point it felt like I was doing something so wrong, felt like I was lost without the doing. Have you ever felt like that?!
