'don't forsake the work of your hands...' -moses
'my soul thirsts for you...my body longs for you in a dry
and weary land where there is no water' -david
'come to me all you who are weary and burdened and i will give you rest...'
'i am gentle and humble of heart...'
'you will find rest for your souls...'
'learn from me...'
'my yoke is easy and my burden is light' -Jesus
- i feel alone?
- i never see my hopes and dreams come to fruition?
- i can pretend no more?
- my way seems unclear?
- my heart gets broken?
- peace evades me?
- i don't have a friend in the world?
...two rugged beams of wood...it always goes back to those two rugged beams of wood...
terror swallowed up by tenderness
crooked and perverse meet the Balm above all other balms
striving is pinned down by downward mobility
guile is swallowed up by gentleness and meekness
scars have holy oil poured on them
death gets swallowed up by life....
might, determination, and will meet a Foolish Power and bow down...
