Hello All!

Thanks for checking out the March Inspiration challenge!
the theme for this month is Relaxation

This is going to be a very stressful month for me my computer got hit with yet another virus, (so now i need to focus on recovery and backups) then we will be repairing my MIL & FIL's vintage RV for us to live in. then we will be moving up to the farm with all of the packing and storage that entails since the RV is very small and most of our belongings won't fit.
And then...my 2 year old is showing signs that she would like to be potty trained too so pray for me if you think of it that through it all I'll be able to hang onto a bit of relaxation and calmly work through it all.


Here is the posting bonus for this month's challenge and here are the selected quotes on the topic of relaxation and some just sound relaxing rofl :-)

Man is so made that he can only find relaxation from one kind of labor by taking up another.
~Anatole France

He enjoys true leisure who has time to improve his soul's estate.
Henry David Thoreau

"The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
And sings."
- Joyce Kilmer

"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."
- William Wordsworth

My soul finds rest in God alone: My salvation comes from Him.
- Psalms 62:1

Come unto me, ye who are weary and overburdened, and I
will give you rest.
- Matthew 11:28

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world
gives do I give to you.
- John 14:27

I will give you peace and quietness.
- I Chronicles 16:11

I won't be online nearly as much now so I'll try to keep up with checking this gallery as best I can and get the posting bonus to you as soon as possible. :-) I can't wait to see what you come up with! :-)

<>< God Bless!

I was going to use the "I will give you peace and quietness.
- I Chronicles 16:11", but I'm finding a different scripture in 1 Chronicles 16:11 - "Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually." I'm wondering if the "peace and quietness quote is a diff. scripture. I'd like to use that quote, but want the reference to be correct. Any help finding which reference is correct would be appreciated.

This is the closest I could find to the one in the first post:
1 Chronicles 22:9

Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days.

I found one I'd like to use instead, I hope that's ok.
2 Thessalonians 3:16

Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means.
