"Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.... I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety." Psalm 4:5, 8.
"Seek to be an evergreen tree. Wear the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. Cherish the grace of love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperence. This is the fruit of the Christian tree. Planted by the rivers of water, it always brings forth its fuit in due season." MS 39, 1896
I have a lot I'd like to share, but the words just wont come, the heart is too weary,the thoughts too muddled. So really I have nothing to say at all. Except that the above verses and quote touched my heart. I am feeling like just about anything but an evergreen these days... But these words were just what I needed.
It is finally Sabbath again. This wannabe Evergreen is so grateful for that.
