Through the dark and stormy night Faith beholds a feeble light Up the blackness streaking; Knowing God’s own time is best, In a patient hope I rest For the full day-breaking!~John Greenleaf Whitter

He who cannot rest, cannot work; he who cannot let go, cannot hold on; he who cannot find footing, cannot go forward.~Harry Emerson Fosdick

Everywhere I have sought rest and found it not except sitting apart in a nook with a little book.~Thomas A. Kempis

Rest time is not waste time. It is economy to gather fresh strength… It is wisdom to take occasional furlough. In the long run, we shall do more by sometimes doing less.~Charles Spurgeon

The need for rest and refreshment has beckoned and I shall bid its call. The many demands of foster-care and its bounty of uncertainty has left us feeling ¬†somewhat drained. So, a rest; from blogging to refresh my mind and emotions in God’s Word, good literature, and our favorite new TV show and Pinterest ¬†for entertaining distractions. I will return next week with this post: Confessions of a First-Time Foster Parent. Until then I am assured goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Men sigh for the wings of a dove, that they may fly away and be at Rest. But flying away will not help us. “The Kingdom of God is WITHIN YOU.” We aspire to the top to look for Rest; it lies at the bottom. Water rests only when it gets to the lowest place. So do men. Hence, be lowly.~Hennry Drummond
