Pull Up A Chair and Rest Awhile

Matthew 11:28-30 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
28 “Come to Me, all [a]who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For My yoke is [b]easy and My burden is light.”

With my combined auto-immune diseases, I really like a good chair; and, if the chair reclines, I like it even more.  Today work was hard, especially with the annoying, even embarrassing, brain fog that appears at the most inopportune times, a part of my illnesses that is most unwelcome.  Tonight this scripture passage came to mind.  It is as if Jesus said, "Pull up a chair and rest awhile.  Let me sweep away the fog."  
I believe I will.  Thank you, Lord.  I need a little time out.
