Sunday Scripture | Resting

I was looking for scripture on "tiredness, fatigue, rest".  Truthfully, I'm pretty sure I've looked these up before.  But, the scripture that I found that I like is:

" At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.  Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.
“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
 “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.” "--Matthew 11:25-30

I wondered what the true meaning of "rest" is in this verse.  You know, there always seems to be different schools of thought on everything.  I found an interesting take on it here:
I am going to take a day of rest today, because I need to re-connect with my family and prepare everything for going back to school this week.  I promise I'll get to everyone on my "Sit & Relax" linky and the Spritual Sunday linky.  But, it might not be today.  I love blogging, by I realized yesterday, it's not my real life.  And it's taking away time from my "real life".  I'm trying to build my blog, but it's become an obsession.  I'm trying to keep up with everyone and I'm having a great time doing it.  I love talking to everyone and learning new things.  But, it's taking time away from my family.  I still plan on posting every day and visiting people who visit me.  I will still visit other people also, but I need to come up with some kind of schedule/plan on who and when to visit so that I can set some limits!!  I'll let you guys know what I come up with!

Everyone have a wonderful and Blessed Sunday!  Peace be with you!
