And so to rest

Posted by Simon Parke, 25 February 2020, 4.23pm

i’m taking a blogging rest for lent

sometimes there’s just nothing to do, nothing to say, nothing to achieve

sometimes there’s no one to please, no standard to meet, no future to make

there’s only rest and rest’s mercy

delight in aimlessness and meandering above things done

more joy in silence than in praise

if something’s worth doing, it’s worth not doing

i hope you and your one precious life find rest along your busy way

rest the mind and find the heart

it might make all the difference
