Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

This past week in my life continued to be full of much activity, culminating with the news about Hurricane Irene. In the midst of it all, Girlfriend-Next-Door sent a lovely poem I want to share with you. She is working with a team of gals at her church to prepare a fall retreat.
Come to the silence, life is so loud -- And your soul needs a break from the clock and the crowd.
Come to the silence, And let my love start, To heal all life's hurts, And comfort your heart.
Come to the silence, Be calm and be still, Just rest in my arms -- for today, that's my will ...
Come to the silence, In search of my peace, Gently your doubts and your fears will all cease.
Come to the silence, Here, take my hand, Have you forgotten that I understand?
