Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Rest...

With this counting of thanks, I can feel the anxiety I have carried start to melt away, the shoulders loosen and breathing slow. Breathe, relax, and stop taking all the "stuff" so seriously. The intensity in which I live my life sometimes, He asks me to loosen my grip and instead give it to Him. My hand slowly opens when I give thanks. With this practice gratitude, "living thanks" I receive peace, rest for my weary soul. Trusting Him that He knows better than I do.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28
