Traveling Light

Hello there! It's been awhile...of course!
Summertime really keeps everyone busy.
One of my very best friends, Brianna (Look at my last post), told me about this amazing book called Traveling Light by Max Lucado. Brianna is one of my best friends, you know I had to get it! So, the book is about releasing the burdens you were never intended to bear. It is based off of a very popular verse Psalm 23. In case you aren't familiar with it, Psalm 23 is a promise to us. I won't spoil the whole novel but basically, he talks about lightening our loads.



It says, "God is saying to you, "Set that stuff down! You're carrying burdens you don't need to bear." "Come to me," he invites, "all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28 NLT).
This made me think, why am I relying so much on my own strength. God is telling us to not rely on our own strength, but trust in Him. He will free you from the burdens you carry. How amazing is that?
Okay, so I won't ruin the book for everyone. But, another post will be coming when I finish the book completely!

*Cue awkward subject transition* Is there a better way of doing so? haha!

On another note,
The past couple of weeks have been awesome!
Here's a quick recap:
I got to have a picnic at a beautiful park!

Went to the zoo with my awesome mom, brother and a couple of best friends! And coming up in the next week I get to help throw my best friend's bachelorette party! She's getting married in 2 months! I'm so excited for her.

More posts coming soon for the book I am reading and some exciting things coming up! 
With love, 
Leah.
