Rest and Pleasure

I noted all of the quotes that Jared shared as well!  All very good.  I was hooked from the very first paragraph!

"You stir man to take pleasure in praising you, because you have made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it rests in you."

This has certainly been a major theme in my life, and according to the footnotes that is a major theme in his work.  I see so many things he says that I could sit and talk about for hours.  This one being the first!

I see the importance of reading this book slowly.  There is so much there to meditate on already.
