THE REST-GIVER

THE REST-GIVER
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Reflect.
Renew.
Recharge.
Receive.
Christmas is over.
Commercialism,
Commotion,
Conversations ….
Cease.
~~~~
Quiet replaces
The faces,
Traces
Of loved ones,
Around the tree.
~~~
Exhausted one
Seeks Exalted One.
Lonely one
Seeks Living One.
Empty one
Seeks Identifying One;
Restless one
Seeks Rest-Giving One.

~~~
The Rest-Giver
Comes ….
Canopies weary frame:
Quiets,
Consoles,
Comforts,
Communes;

Concerned by the cares
Of the soul.
~~~
Covering,
Carrying,
Cradling

The soul.....
The Christ of compassion
Comes in.
The Rest-Giver;
Jesus,
Within.
~~~
For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel;
“In returning and rest you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength…”
Isaiah 30:15
