.i will give you {rest}


{rest}
it was something i needed more of this summer.
constant exhaustion.
not enough time.
you know that saying,
{no rest for the weary}
well i beg to differ.
there is rest in my Jesus.
and now that i'm home,
i see rest in a new light.
i'm not as exhausted physically.
i'm more exhausted from life in general.
the questions. the fears. the unknown.
rest is defined as:
{relief or freedom, especially from anything that wearies,troubles, or disturbs.}
i love that.
freedom.
my Jesus allows me to freely come to him, 
and {rest} in his unending love.
he carries all of my burdens.
...
"come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, 
and i will give you rest.  
take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, 
for i am gentle and lowly in heart, 
and you will find rest for your souls. 
 for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
{matthew 11:28-30}
...
this is a song i learned this summer.
one that is a constant reminder and comfort to me.

you can rest today.
rest tomorrow.
rest forevermore.
you can find peace today.
peace tomorrow.
peace forevermore. 
we lay down our minds, hearts, & strength & souls
to hear the word of Jesus Christ our Lord.
so come to me.
all of you who are weary
and carry heavy burdens, 
for i will give you rest.
take my yoke.
i am humble  and gentle.
come near and let me teach you
and you will find rest for your souls.
where can i find rest? 
not in accomplishments
forget this striving.
i am done.
i want to find rest in the Son.

.someone like {you}.

i'm back.
back in the land where crickets cry
&
childen were born to chase fireflies.
i left my rocky mountains behind
for hazy blue hills that appear all around you.
i can't say it's not good to be back in the south,
but i feel like my heart is still in colorado.
i miss the people.
their voices.
their laughs.
i hear them every day.
{yes. i'm hearing voices. somebody help me.}
...
...
this summer has left it's mark on my heart and my soul.
i will always remember.
i will continue to grow and learn from it.
dear {elc} friends,
i will never forget you or what we learned from each other.
you have changed me forever.
and i am thankful for someone like {you}.
now go have a new adventure.

.it's time to let you go.

{dear elc}
it seems we only have 2 days left together.
where has the time gone?
thank you for this summer.
for the laughter.
for new friends.
for my crew family.
thanks for the memories.
i will always remember.
you have changed me & made me stronger.
i hate the sound goodbyes make.
but what an experience you have given me.
i love you.
don't worry.
we'll meet again.
{love, me}
