Five Minute Friday - Rest


Today I am joining Lisa Jo-Baker and many others for Five Minute Friday. I will be writing for five minutes flat - no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking Today's word is:  REST

I am helping my daughter work on a project for an after school class she is taking. The goal sell a product she has created at a marketplace next week.  She's been preparing. She has learned everything, how to do a business plan, how to create a loan agreement, and how to market her product.

She is recreating something simple I made a while back.

All the supplies are in and it's not just right... it's not perfect. 

I almost screamed yesterday at the realization that this may not work. The clock is ticking, my mind has not stopped racing. There is no rest.

This was suppose to fun. I was looking forward to this experience for the last 2 years. Why isn't this easier?

I find myself praying as I walk around in frustration. Even this morning as I wake up I am unsettled (the last thing I want to do is write.) I am mumbling "Lord, I cast the whole of my care on you"... it's not working. There still is no rest.

Where can I get the supplies I need to replace these sub par ones that I have? Where do I go Lord? What do I do?

Still trying to cast my care I continue to pray.

What Lord, this isn't about me??? Let it go?? What? You want me to rest??  In. You.  ( I am so glad I decided to write this morning... )
