Before jumping to this week's edition of our a2z meme, I want to invite you over to Seekerville, my favorite writing blog, where I'm guest posting today. I sure could use your moral support. Really. The rattling you're hearing is my knees knocking together. Really.

Ordinary Lives. From a 2 z 4 u & me

Now, for this week's installment of our a 2 z 4 u & me meme,

the letter R.

Okay, I have another confession to make. (Why do I feel like this a2z meme wrings these confessions from me at least once a month? sigh.)

I'm envious of my animals.
I am.

Here's why...

See what Tippy's doing? Lazing on the bench on the deck.
Guess what I've not done?

And just look at FlufferNut and Gracie.
Sleeping in the sunshine.

Gracie. Gracie. Gracie.
I may never be as...graceful as Gracie
(at least I sure hope I'm not!)
but I'm so envious.

Even Puppers takes time from her playing to roam and smell the flowers...

and my fish have it good.

You guys all know how it goes:
Run. RUn. RUN.
There's no let up from it.
There's very little rest in our lives.
But I know where to find that elusive, much sought after desire.
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you REST." ~Matthew 11:28

Rest is found in Christ alone.
And He tells us how... "Come to Me"
It's that simple sometimes.
I don't know about you, but I need simple.


If you're joining us for the a 2 z 4 u & me meme by posting on your blog this week about the letter R, be sure to add your name and the link to that particular post in the linky gadget here.

And don't forget to come visit me at Seekerville! =)


  1. Yes, that's definitely the best rest there is! Thanks, Patty! (Now off to Seekerville...)

  2. Rest, not just physical rest but spiritual rest, is something I need so much of in my life. Thanks, Patty.

  3. Well, you had a great Seekerville post and popped over here to se your blog... and ended up making my own post and linking! Wow, you should hire yourself out as a coach! :D

  4. Patty,

    I think we're two of a kind (see my post for today). LOL

    Loved your seekerville post. You did an excellent job.


  5. Shelley, resting in Christ IS the best rest, isn't it? Something we need far more than we realize sometimes.

    Amy, you and me, both! Physical exhaustion is more easily handled when we're spiritually resting.

  6. Virginia, welcome!! So good to have you! =]

    LoL--I teach blogging. ;-)It's one of those things I LOVE doing.

    Thank you, Ginger. Platform building tends to be one of my soap-boxes. *blush*

    And you're tired, girl? I don't know why you would be. ROFL

    Hugs all around!

  7. What a fabulous reminder. And I envy your animals too ;)Thanks, sweetie.

  8. Awww, they're so cute! Great analogy.

  10. Off to see your guest post, Patty.

  11. Oh girl, you just made me Ridiculously envious too!!! I'll rest in Christ alone alongside you. Love you!

  12. I want to come play with your animals. :)

  13. Rest - ahhhh... sounds good to me. Love your pictures too:)

  14. As I write this, my Westie is snuggled up in his basket with his toy frog. As neurotic as he can be sometimes, he does know how to rest!
    Love the picture of Gracie under the tree!

  15. love your "aminals"! i, too, am often envious of my doggies :)
