on rest…

Come to Me
Get away with Me and you’ll recover your life.
I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
Matthew 11:28-30


In returning and rest you
shall be saved;
in quietness and in trust
shall be your strength.
Isaiah 30:15


It is only by starting in a place of peace that we find purpose.
Martha Beck


Free hearts rock boats,
break rules,
do things that disrupt the system…
Whether that system is a disfunctional family,
a bloated bureaucracy,
or the whole wide world…
Martha Beck

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Mae West


Some of us come on earth seeing,
some of us come on earth seeing colour.
Louise Nevelson


The only map of your real life is written on your soul at its most peaceful,
and the only sure compass is your heart at its most open.
Martha Beck

I was a late bloomer. But anyone that blooms at all, ever, is very lucky.
Sharon Olds


The wilderness has a clarity that included me.

Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.
Walker Evans

for my children…

Stand on my shoulders and do far more
than I have ever done before.
Kneel down before God that saved me,
gave me a new chance,
renewed me,
filled me with His Spirit.
I give my shoulder to you…


Nothing could make me happier
than getting reports
that my children continue
in the way of truth.
III John 1:4

on life…

Once the game is over the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
Michael Moncur


The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

Ek stoot my vensterrame
hoog op,
en my hart jubel, wil juig
ek soek vir my ‘n
plekkie eenkant om
voor die Allerhoogste te buig.
Hester Heese
