Rest, My Child
















As day rolls into evening and night into dawn, I listen!
My plans tempered.

Silent walks unveil masked beauty.
Time silently moving.

Rest, My child!

Thank you for visiting my place, and your comment- it's so true! Even our freedom from the repercussions (sp?) of sin came at a price. I'll remember your comment, and quote it to those cynics amongst us.

We all need rest, the way we operate in life to sustain is crazy. There must be calm. I want calm, but sometimes my mind works too fast and gets muddled. Bless you Andrea.

Btw how is your brother-in-law? Doing ok?
