"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Rest from my labor --
    put aside my daily tasks,
    the gathering of manna that sustains me,
    to open up my time for the work of God.

Rest from my burden --
    put aside my daily worries,
    the thoughts and cares that press in on me,
    to open up my mind for strength from God.

Rest from my pleasure --
    put aside my daily wants,
    the stubborn ways and words that limit me,
    to open up myself to feel the will of God.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
