A Note From Joy
Spring is here and it is a race to the finish line! There are a lot of hurdles from March to May–testing, sporting events and concerts, end of year ceremonies and celebrations, and so much more! Families today are extremely busy. We’ve begun to wear busyness as a badge of honor. “How are you doing?” “Whew! I’m so busy!”
When people ask how we are doing, we are hesitant to answer truthfully. If we are being honest, we are exhausted. We have something every night of the week. We miss eating dinner together as a family. Jesus offers good news for the weary. He says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
Nestled in the middle of our busy Spring schedules is Easter–a day carved out to celebrate our Risen Savior! Let me encourage you to set aside Easter weekend to rest as a family. I don’t know what rest looks like for you, but plan ahead, and take the time to celebrate Jesus!
