Back Soon

I am closing up shop for just a few days. However, since I really don't want to leave all this empty space on this post, here is something I read today that touched my heart:

"God made the soul for Himself, to have its bliss in His infinite, unchanging, exhaustless love. The soul then 'must needs be restless, until it repose in Him.' Everything, whether it belongs to the keenest intellect, or the lowest senses, is an idol if the soul rests in it, apart from God. The soul's craving for peace is its natural yearning for its End, its Maker,and its God. Since the soul is large enough to contain the infinite God, nothing less than Himself can satisfy or fill it."

E.B. Pusey (1800-1882)
(emphasis mine)

I'll be back soon.


P.S. Might I humbly suggest something you might enjoy reading. Elizabeth has written a series on her blog that is, for me, so powerful. It has given me much to think about.
