I hear the bed calling

 Does your unmade bed ever call to you?
I hear it now from the next room ...
"I know you are tired, weary, in need of rest. 
Come, burrow here, and find comfort. 
Pull the covers over your head, just for a little while.
Blot out the world, the responsibilities, the weight of it all. 
Sink into me and let go. Cry if you need to.
Remember whose you are and gather strength.
When you are refreshed, rise again."
we can find Jesus in the midst of everyday things
if we but look and listen.

Reflection on Matthew 11:28
"Come to me, all you who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."
