sabbath rest

dec 09 022Advent was a folding upon the life growing in our darkness.

now the seeking is going out from ourselves.

no matter how hard the way, it will be in some measure sweet to us,

and we shall take it, not as a path along which we are driven, but as one whose attraction we cannot resist,

because we know that on it we shall discover him.

–Caryll Houselander, The Reed of God
