A Thought on Rest

As heard on KLBT 88.1

“He taketh me to lie down. . .” Psalm 23

Do you have to be made to rest? Or do you have to become ill before you will rest?

    Today, I want to share with you an encounter I had with an amazing person. Handsome couple, she and her husband, professional people, seemed to “have it all.” Consistent with what we read about ways to stay grounded in life, this lady was laser-focused on a purpose. Not a whim, not “purpose of the week” or “subject to change.” HER purpose: Mentoring single moms.

    That was at least a dozen years ago. Others and I have watched her see the dream become real, bringing numbers of others with her, mostly single moms. She calls herself a “Tough Old Bird.” On the outside, maybe, but at her center, well, that’s a whole other story! If I were a single mom with questions about life’s issues, I would trust that “Tough Old Bird” to mentor me! (Wonder if she ever considered “Wise Old Owl” as a handle. Only problem………”wise” is the only part that would apply.)
