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.
In returning and rest you
shall be saved;
in quietness and in trust
shall be your strength.
It is only by starting in a place of peace that we find purpose.
Free hearts rock boats,
do things that disrupt the system…
Whether that system is a disfunctional family,
a bloated bureaucracy,
or the whole wide world…
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Some of us come on earth seeing,
some of us come on earth seeing colour.
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.
I was a late bloomer. But anyone that blooms at all, ever, is very lucky.
The wilderness has a clarity that included me.
Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.
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,
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
Once the game is over the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
Ek stoot my vensterrame
en my hart jubel, wil juig
ek soek vir my ‘n
plekkie eenkant om
voor die Allerhoogste te buig.
