God is there in these moments of rest, and can give us in a single instant exactly what we need. Then the rest of the day can take it's course, under the same effort and strain, perhaps, but in peace. And when night comes, and you look back over the day and see how fragmentary everything has been, and how much you planned that has gone undone, and all the reasons you have been embarrassed and ashamed: Just take everything exactly as it is, put it in God's hands and leave it to Him. Then you will be able to rest in Him - really rest - and start the next day as a new life.
St. Benedicta (Edith Stein)

'Divine Redeemer, make me to understand that afflictions here below are as flowers which promise to bear fruits of glory, and that our tears, like sacred oil, consecrate us to immortality.'

We must need occasionally to relax the mind, and the body requires some recreation also. Cassian relates how Saint John the Evangelist was found by a certain hunter amusing himself by caressing a partridge, which sat upon his wrist. The hunter asked how a man of his mental powers could find time for so trifling an occupation. In reply, Saint John asked why he did not always carry his bow strung? The man answered, Because, if always bent, the bow would lose it's spring when really wanted. "Do not marvel then", the Apostle replied, "if I slacken my mental efforts from time to time, and recreate myself, in order to return more vigorously to contemplation." It is a great mistake to be so strict as to grudge any recreation either to others or one's self.

It's good to find harmless amusements to refresh the mind.

What is bad is to continually engage in amusements as an end, for their own sake, rather than for the above. This I think mistakes the purpose of entertainment.

I agree with that. We must pray continually for the Holy Spirit to guide us away from the snares that would enslave us, and ruin our souls.

I thank God for this illness and these physical discomforts, because I have time to converse with the Lord Jesus.

And I as well, when I read the line in Genesis 22:6 "Thereupon Abraham took the wood for the holocaust and laid it on his son Issac's shoulders",
it stopped me cold, all I could think about was the cross being laid upon the shoulders of Jesus. And there is so much more.

I think it is called 'Types'. I find it fun and interesting to read about. Parallels between the OT and NT and how wonderfully God planned everything out.  Smiley

A great number of loved ones await us in heaven. An enormous host is filled with longing for us. Their concern is only for us. To be in their presence, to be embraced by their arms....what immeasurable joy it will be for them and for us.

Collect plenty of food during the happy days of your spiritual summers. You will be able to endure the difficult days of temptation during the winters of your soul.

"Riches are not forbidden, but the pride of them is"
Saint John Chrysostom
Just thought I would add another quote on the topic:

"So let no man destroy wealth, rather than the passions of the soul, which are incompatible with the better use of wealth. So that, becoming virtuous and good, he may be able to make a good use of these riches. The renunciation, then, and selling of all possessions, is to be understood as spoken of the passions of the soul. "
St. Clement of Alexandria

The second quote is almost like a continuation of the first! Very interesting Smiley
