It is wisdom to take occasional furlough. In the long run, we shall do more by sometimes doing less. On, on, on for ever, without recreation may suit spirits emancipated from this ‘heavy clay’, but while we are in this tabernacle, we must every now and then cry halt, and serve the Lord by holy inaction and consecrated leisure. Let no tender conscience doubt the lawfulness of going out of harness for a while.

Charles Spurgeon

I’m taking a day today—a much needed day. I’m leaning in to creative pursuits in solitude and silence, catching up and getting back on track.

I hope to accomplish much; I may accomplish nothing.

Either way, it will be well.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I love Charles Sprurgeon and all of his quotes of wisdom. The one you quoted today is especially meaningful as I don’t think it’s taken to heart much in today’s world. I hope you share your creative pursuits that you are enjoying today….

    1. Agree. And the thing is that we can only continue running for so long before something gives. When we’re in it for the long game periods of rest are vital.
