If I had to name my disability, I would call it an unwillingness to fall ... This reluctance signals the mistrust of the central truth of the Christian gospel: life springs from death, not only at the last but also in the many little deaths along the way. When everything you count on for protection has failed, the Divine Presence does not fail. The hands are still there -- not promising to rescue, not promising to intervene -- promising only to hold you no matter how far you fall.

- Barbara Brown Taylor, from her book Leaving Church: A Memoir of Faith

My own words will soon follow, but for today I felt the need to share this.

this Diva is going to be a Diva again soon... plans and schemes are in the works for me returning to this blog... and it will involve God, food, crafts, simplicity, poems and photos, this is not an empty promise, it is however intended to be a tease

Stop for one whole day every week, and you will remember what it means to be created in the image of God, who rested on the seventh day not from weariness but from complete freedom. The clear promise is that those who rest like God find themselves free like God, no longer slaves to the thousand compulsions that send others rushing toward their graves.
