The unnecessary burden, or ''My yoke is easy and my burden light"

It's easy to do. You're standing there at 8:30 at night, still washing the dinner dishes. Your day started at 5:30 a.m., and you've gone without stopping. And looking ahead into your night, you realize that before 'bed' happens, you still have to nurse a baby, start that last load of laundry, pick up the toys in the living room, send a couple of e-mails, and maybe...maybe you'll get to take a shower. Only so you can start it all over again at 5:30 the next morning.

Somehow, the joy left....it walked out the back door. And your spirit droops....and you can feel your attitude turning sour. "Why should I have to do all this work? Nobody understands how HARD I work! The pressures are too great, the responsibilities too heavy! Oh, woe is me! Poor, poor me!"  And before you know it, you sound like a whiny four year old. (Saying 'YOU sound like' is easier than admitting that this has actually been me on several occasions---thus, the reason for not writing this in first person, haha)

Sound familiar? If so, please, please, please, go read this . This experienced mother puts it so much more clearly than I ever could. It's a beautiful post.......call on Jesus.....sing to Jesus......give Him your unnecessary burden......read this post, and be blessed! :)

that was beautiful and this is the song to go with it, that says the same thing we do with our houses and our time, we do with God, and He just wants to BE with us!!
