When Weariness Sets In . . . Restoration is found . . .Recalibrated, Rebalanced . . . Spirit Rebounds

Natural, Landscape, Autumnal Leaves

Weary But Not Broken

My weary heart
Out of sorts
Tried and tired.
And cross-wired.
Leaves, Fallen Leaves, Oak Leaves
So laden and worn,
Spent and adrift,
Fallen thro' cracks
Something's amiss.

Leaf, Autumn Leaf, Autumn, Puddle
The Holy Spirit is just as truly in us when He makes no sign as when the fountains of joy are overflowing, or the waters of peace are softly refreshing our weary and troubled heart.
     ------A. B. Simpson
Trust in the seeds
Planted from birth, 
A gentle knead,
Reclaims my worth.
Sheet, Autumn, Rose Hip, Leaves, Nature
The truth be told
We are harvest's gold,
Called to nest
In comforting rest.

My worth rebounds
From that still small sound
Comes the dove,
Seeded in love.
   ---G. Hill

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
     Matthew 11:28-30

    This beautiful wisdom comes at a time when I have prayed to the Holy spirit for help with some issues – as always my prayers were answered- I love the scripture from Matthew- thank you!
