Baby enjoying ice creamIt is my prayer that both you and I find our rest, comfort, and joy in God today.  Autumn FlowersMy soul finds rest in God alone (Psalm 62)

“Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
    my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God
    he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.”
(Psalm 62:5-8)
