the very sea pauses at ebb and flood;
earth keeps the Sabbath of the wintry months;
and man, even when exalted to God’s ambassador,
must rest or faint,
must trim his lamp or let it burn low;
must recruit his vigor or grow prematurely old. . . .
In the long run we shall do more by sometimes doing less.
~Charles Spurgeon as quoted in Traveling Light by Max Lucado
In a world rocky with human failure, there is a land lush with divine mercy.
Your Shepherd invites you there.
He wants you to lie down.
Nestle deeply until you are hidden, buried, in the tall shoots of his love,
and there you will find rest.
~Max Lucado in Traveling Light
In the stillness,
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
