I'm married to the beautiful Bridget and father to four fantastic kiddos. We plant churches and live in a fifth-wheel camper. I write and smoke a pipe whenever I get the chance. Currently camped in Austin, TX.
“There is nothing like being left alone again, to walk peacefully with oneself in the woods. To boil one’s coffee and fill one’s pipe, and to think idly and slowly as one does it.” – Knut Hamsun
Jesus often got away to be alone with His Father, and He offers that same resource to us. We can walk with Him in the cool of the day, we can have a cup of coffee with Him, and we can certainly share a pipe with Him. To sit and behold our Lord, to commune with Him, to wait upon and rest in Christ is woven into our very nature. May we think idly (without distraction) and slowly (without haste) upon our glorious Lord.
