Weekends are for Walks in the Park (and stopping to rest along the way!)

Praise God for the sunshine here and a cool breeze.  What a perfect day to go to the park! 

"M" was very afraid of a little ant crossing the path.
Love the felt egg sticking out of "M's" pocket... she wanted to bring along a snack!

All along the way "M" kept asking to stop for a rest.  It made me think of my walk with Christ.  In the craziness and busyness of life, am I stopping for a rest?  Am I stopping to seek to make sure I am heading in the right direction?  Am I taking moments to wait for HIM to fill me and strengthen me?  Just like "M" was able to complete the walk today by resting along the way (and not wearing herself out), I need to remember that life will be much less tiresome if I stop for some quiet moments with my Heavenly Father along the way.
