restless

The theme of "sacrifice/suffering" fits well this week, the week to do the Big Shopping.  The Mom insists that she can count it for her walk, since the only way she could keep going was to pretend that she was on the treadmill.

Augustine said: "My soul is restless until it rests in you, O God," but when I examine the tortuous story of our own salvation, I see not only that we are yearning to belong to God, but that God also is yearning to belong to us.  It seems as if God is crying out to us:  My heart is restless until I may rest in you, my beloved creation."  (Henry Nouwen)

One more disjointed thought to join the others:

"We are most ourselves when we are closest to the One in whose image we are made."

You know, a stable can be a lot of work!

Walk to Rivendell:  We camp by a stream.
