body and soul

      There’s a lot of talk these days about taking good care of our bodies. Sometimes we need a little encouragement (and permission) to take good care of our souls, too.

“Here I am, gentle Lord: you know the state of my soul this day, whether disconsolate or weary . . . ; let me come to you now for hope and rest and quiet joy, for you are a refuge for my soul.” Bobby Gross

“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why are you disturbed and disquieted within me?” Psalm 43:5
