Baggage 

When do you get tired?

Tired of being sick and tired
Tired of being weary and heavy leaden
Tired of being bogged down

Dragged down..
Worn down…
Shackled-

Tired…

Reclaiming my time!

No, not yet- luggage has arrived
Do you pick it up?
Of course you do, you always do…

You bring it
Check it
Hope that it’s lost, pray it’s lost
Then stand at the carousel
Waiting….

Reclaiming my baggage!

Just once,
Leave the baggage with the attendant
Then walk past the carousel
Back out the door

Reclaiming my joy,
Reclaiming my mind,
Reclaiming my peace,

Reclaiming……

~Matthew 11:28-29 – Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.~
