Sweet reminder...

Lately, life has been completely, utterly, totally (how many more synonyms are there....I could probably use a few more...) overwhelming.  When I say overwhelming, I don't for a second mean bad or hard or unhappy.  I have been blessed abundantly and am only a few short weeks away from being married to my best friend and the love of my life.  The very essence of me being overwhelmed is due to having so many exciting and amazing things to look forward to and prepare for.  Somehow, time and time again I let those joyful anticipations turn into stressful tasks on a list that need to be checked off.  Yet, in the midst of these overwhelming moments I am reminded of the importance of slowing down, taking a deep breath, and remembering Who is in control.  It is in that place of peace and rest that my worries and stress fall away, and my shoulders feel light and free once again.  Oh that I would lay down that weight more often and simply enjoy the moments as they pass me by...

Here are some more sweet reminders of words to live by each day, particularly those days that feel overwhelming...
