Rest For the Soul

Matthew 11:29 English Standard Version (ESV)
29 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.

Summer brings thoughts of childhood days on my grandparents' farm, lovely, lovely days of play, good food, animal friends and quiet.  The old farmhouse clock chimed hours not passed by television viewing.  The gentle whoosh of milking machine in the barn set our hearts to a quieter rhythm.  Grandma would wash our hair under the outdoor  pump and let us dry it in the sun.  Knowing the cows would be milked in the morning and at night, we woke to Grandpa heading down to the barn and slept after his return.  Those memories are behind the choices of images I used for the song by the Robby Seay Band, "Slow Me Down."  It's a prayer, really, for God to slow us down so He can wake our souls to Him.  May we rest in Him no matter the season.
