About Rest for the Weary

I hope you will find this little spot a place of rest and refreshment for your soul. My intention is to build up women in the trenches of homeschooling. This includes veterans who are burned out and former homeschooling moms who have decided for one reason or another to put some or all of their children in school. Thanks for stopping by. Take a deep breath of refreshment for your weary soul.

Summer of Renewal, 1

Back in October, I wanted to participate in Emily's 31 day challenge to write daily on something.  Life was crazy as usual.  My intent was to write 31 days of healing.  Instead, I am going to write about healing in the form of a summer of renewal--of body, mind, and spirit.  This isn't some magical guarantee from a crystal ball and boom instant healing but about faith and inspiration.    Rather it is about little things I (and you) can do each day to heal my body, mind, and soul, one tiny step each day. 
My first step to healing is to daily pray the prayer below that I composed.  (I encourage you to create your own under the guidance of the Holy Spirit as to what you need)  I pray this because each day is like starting at the beginning of a game, and each night I wind back at home, only to start on the path again.

"Lord, I place my trust in you this day.  I surrender my will to Yours acknowledging that you are in control of it all.  It's not up to me.  All I control is how I act.  Grant me the grace to accept Your will and to live in the joy of the Lord, my strength. Amen."
