Ooooweeeee, am I worn out!  Teaching takes it out of me in a way I had forgotten.  Last week I either went to bed crazy early or took a nap when I got home.  Rest is so good for the body.  One night I went to bed feeling quite overwhelmed, next morning I felt amazingly better after 9 hours of sleep.

That took care of the physical tired, but then I really needed a bit of time with God and to paint.  I needed to turn to Him while I restored my soul.  And it worked, just like it always does.  He sent just the right verses to remind me He sent me on this adventure, that He has plans for me.

And the same is true for you.  Taking out time to be with God, to find His words and peace, to sit and pray in quiet–these are things we can do to let Him restore us each day.  I know for some of you, these posts are piece of your time with God–thank you for letting me share in it.  Just knowing you are out there, restores my soul as well.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.

    Dear Nicole, I am so delighted with your artwork and the words behind it. What a blessing to come by, look at your art and read your thoughts. I have downloaded quite a few to print out and stick on my walls and mirrors to keep them fresh in my heart. Also I found a couple that will make a wonderful face on a card with a message that I’m quite sure you made for my friends in need right now. You are very generous to share your wonderful work. Thank you. God is surely using you greatly.
    Love & blessings,
    Laura Sawyer, Dillsburg PA
