Harbors Hold Us Anchored


Harbors hold us anchored, but only until we are brave enough

to admit we needed the rest, and until we seek more

than just the wind. A deep knowing that our hearts

are renewed, by longing more frequently

for the setting sun.


Note: My friends I am seeking a deeper rest

but to be honest, I often wonder how.

  1. Pondering your “friends request” or “heart share”. Love your post. Seeking the harbor or ” Anchor’ besides the wind. Some pretty deep seeking, I reading. ‘Rest” as in a vacation isn’t always available or welcomed. The only answer I have ever found any true refreshment and rest, has been at the feet, and in the arms of Jesus in His Word. I hope it doesn’t sound like a pat answer. When I need a “word” most, I go to the Cross. Begin in the garden or anywhere along His walk and He always meets me there. Prayers my friend.

    1. Thank you Denise for your beautiful comments. I honestly have thought about not blogging at all or at least cutting back to a trickle. I have a stack of books I would like to read and I do feel a strong need to seek a spiritual quiet. Life has been super tough in different ways for quite awhile, and I am worn. You share your faith beautifully, so please feel free to do so here. Peace to you.

  2. Sometimes we feel this way, when we are worn out or overwhelmed. Each day is an opportunity to begin again, knowing there is always a sunrise to breath in and a sunset to breathe out and let go. Peace to you my friend.

    1. Than you Karen for your wonderful comments! Yes it is true, and I have wanted to stop blogging, but I love to write. I think it is what I am supposed to do. So I will rest more often but not quit completely. Peace and rich blessings to you.
