A Restful, Rest-filled Place

In a world of noise there are few quiet places where the mind can escape for a moment of refreshment. Today I discovered a stopping place that was like finding a grassy knoll beside a stream. I sat and let the cleansing water wash over me and was reminded of the Source of life. It was a place to ponder Psalm 46:10 — “Be still, and know that I am God.”

Ann Voskamp‘s blog, A Holy Experience, is a restful, rest-filled cyberplace that provides a moment of stillness in a noisy day. Her words minister. They are written art.

To spend time browsing through her thoughtful posts is a blessing. I recommend it to you.

Bloggers’ Library Loving Challenge

Jennifer Hubbard is doing it again. Last year she decided to participate in a bloggers’ challenge to benefit local libraries. It was so successful that she’s inviting everyone to get involved in another one.

This year’s Bloggers’ Library Loving Challenge is this week, from March 23-27. The idea is to open a post on your blog, pledge so much per comment received and then donate the funds to your local library or other literary organization of your choice. If you skip over to Jenn’s blog today and let her know you’re going to take part she’ll include your blog’s URL on her blog roll to encourage lots of visitors. While I’m not taking part this time, I urge you to either make your own pledge and support your local library or visit the participating blogs to comment and help those bloggers raise their funds. It’s a great idea. Libraries everywhere always need money.
