Beauty of Nothing
Silence. There’s nothing like it. After a week full of meetings, one on ones, conferences and agendas, a day of quiet and isolation does a heart and mind good. There’s something about doing nothing, being still, shutting down that restores, rejuvenates, reminds me that when I’m too busy, too occupied, stretched too thin and pulled in too many directions I stop being and become a doing.
When you long to be an advocate, a doer of good, a maker of peace, a bringer of justice, a healer in a hurting and broken world you also open yourself to exhaustion and, if you’re not careful, stamp yourself with an expiration date.
No one can give without receiving, work without relief, serve without rest.
