He leads me beside peaceful waters.
He renews my soul.

I especially need to focus on that verse and stare at gentle waters this week! I have been immersed in leading three 7-week accelerated college courses, leaving me with approximately 90 papers to grade each week within four days (all writing, no multiple-choice). Add my “regular” teaching job and three kids in sports and well…you see how “peaceful waters” can restore a girl who needs some restoration. 🙂 Have a truly blessed day!

I took the photo at a small little park in our area that just happens to have this lovely waterfall.

    That looks like a beautiful place to breathe, and relax, even for a moment.

    I need this as well. Thank you for sharing this. God bless you with the strength to do what you can today!

      I am glad it blessed you too! We need to remind ourselves of your sentiments that we take it one day at a time. I’m the worst that way – always desiring to be way ahead then growing frustrated. Good advice, thank you.
