Matthew 11:25-30

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

 (A quilt made for the Ohio State fair - artist unknown.)

I love the design of this quilt, it's curves and lines unique but repeating.  It reminds me that we are all connected in different ways and that our lives overlap each other.  Some days all of that color and energy needs to be set aside, while we appreciate what we are given and rest to enjoy it.

I clicked on your SOOC thumbnail thinking I was going to see a hot air balloon. Funny, it turned out to be a quilt. I never thought. A great shot that fooled me.
