If the rose

Knew only its thorns

Would it still be sweet?

Well Dressed and Well Rested

She makes coverings for her bed;
   she is clothed in fine linen and purple.  – Proverbs 31:22

Read these words and ponder them.  We are called to do God’s work in this world, but that does not mean we are to toil for others yet neglect ourselves.  What good can we do for God or His people if we do not take proper care of ourselves?  He wants the very best for us.  We do not draw others to Him if we appear heavy-hearted, dressed in tattered attire, and physically beaten. 

Work hard?  Yes.  Give to others?  Sure.  Take care of yourself too!
