I’ve been writing a blog post every week for the last few years. I’ve skipped a few weeks for holidays and vacations, but I’ve been pretty consistent. I love doing it, but it does consume a lot of my free time. I spend most of my weekends writing these posts so they’re ready to go out each Monday. Because I need to find a new place to live, I’m going on a short hiatus.
In the meantime, here’s a quote by Danielle Coke Balfour that I love. I discovered it recently while on vacation, in a Target store of all places. You can buy a print of the quote on Danielle’s website.
You were created to do good work. Work that empowers and inspires, liberates and transforms, restores and softens. Yes, work can be hard—as it was meant to be. The verb itself calls us into action, rejecting passivity and and demanding sustained effort. It provokes, agitates, and disturbs. But this work—the call for justice—is good work. It defends the oppressed and frees the captive. It tears down walls and destroys barriers. It changes things. So when you’re feeling weary, or hopeless, or spent, remind yourself that the darkness is being flooded by marvelous light. Yes, this is work. And it is good.
Until next time…
