Last Friday night I "hit the wall." I was exhausted! We got home from one of our home groups about 10 and I was spent to the point of feeling physically ill. A good day of rest helped, but I'm did I let that happen? How did I so foolishly live last week that I found myself at that place? I know it was my foolishness that brought me to that point. I get so busy so easily that it takes a crash to make me stop and remember that I'm not God. I don't have to do it all myself. So here's a reminder for those of you who, like me, are trying to do it all....stop it! You can't. Slow down, get some rest....take some time to stop and rest physically, mentally and spiritually. God intended us to use our rest times to refresh. Rest is a good thing because it reminds us that God is in control and we are not.
Psa 127:2 It is vain for you to rise up early, To retire late, To eat the bread of painful labors; For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.

Hope you have recovered from hitting the proverbial wall.

Incidentally, I have a picture of my younger son in a similar pose dead asleep on with his head on the sofa (circa 15 months old).
