I am going on an Away Mission. You fellow Trekkies out there know what that means. I wanted to let you know why I am not stopping by your blogs and commenting. I am turning off the world. I will be on my balcony.

In the meantime, a promise from Isaiah 60:

I will make your overseers peace and your taskmasters righteousness. 

Violence shall no more be heard in your land, 

devastation or destruction within your borders; 

you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.

Rest for Your Soul


A still, small voice crying in the desert. 

You will find rest for your soul.

Sit here with me on the rickety balcony of my college apartment. 

I lived on Grace Street. I lived on Grace. I still live on Grace, but 

faraway now. I spent a lot of time alone then, well, alone with God. 

It was good for me. 

Quiet times on this simple balcony rearranged me, my soul, my heart. 

After all these years, my days still bear fruit and I rest in His presence. 

I pray for you, friends I haven't met yet, to know this love. 

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 

Matthew 11:28

Do you see it?


Do you see the rainbow?

A quiet whisper reminding us of God's promise.

Good Day

Sit here with me in the quiet for a moment.

For you,

a prayer 

that you will have peace

because you understand

and because you know

and see.

Matthew 1:1

“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, 

the son of David, the son of Abraham.”

Do you see?

Behold, I am doing a new thing;

now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?

I will make a way in the wilderness

and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19
