In a Cabin in the Woods...

Our souls were refreshed. 

"We taste The, O Thou Living Bread,
And long to feast upon Thee still:
We drink of Thee the Fountainhead,
And thirst our souls from Thee to fill."  St. Bernard

"As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.  My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.  When can I go meet with God?"  Psalm 42:1-2

"My soul followeth hard after Thee.."  Psalm 63:8

"Only to sit and think of God
Oh what a joy it is!
To think the thought, to breathe the Name;
Earth has no higher bliss.
Father of Jesus, Love's reward!
What rapture it will be,
Prostrate before Thy throne to lie,
And gaze and gaze on Thee!"
Fredrick Faber

"Lift your heart and let it rest upon Jesus and you are instantly in a sanctuary.  You can see God anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him."  A.W. Tozer

"Believing, then, is directing the heart's attention to Jesus.  It is the mind to 'Behold, the Lamb of God.' (John 1:29), and never ceasing that beholding for the rest of our lives."  A.W. Tozer

"Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let Thy glory be above all the earth."  Psalm 57:5

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power:  for Thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."  Revelation 4:11

"We owe Him every honor that is in our power to give Him.  Our everlasting grief lies in giving Him anything less."  A.W. Tozer

 "Lord, teach me to listen.  The times are noisy and my ears weary with the thousand raucous sounds which continuously assault them.  Give me the spirit of the boy Samuel when he said to Thee 'Speak, for Thy servant heareth.'  Let me hear Thee speaking in my heart.  Let me get used to the sound of Thy voice, that its tones may be familiar when the sounds of the earth die away and the only sound will be the music of Thy speaking voice.  Amen."  A.W. Tozer The Pursuit of God

***Thank you grandparents, for taking such good care and showering your love on our little ones.  We knew they were in good hands which allowed us to enjoy a deeper rest.***
