[quote] i’m tired.

This one is a bit lengthy, but it’s one of my favorites. It’s from G.K. Chesterton, as said in his book Orthodoxy. Right now, as I’m glancing at the clock and wondering why in the great world I’m awake right now (as I’ve been complaining of pure mental and physical exhaustion since the moment I got out of bed) it brings me peace knowing that it’s okay to be tired, for my God never grows tired! He has eternal energy and His promises are to renew my tired, heavy spirits every minute of every day. Enjoy & goodNIGHT!

“The thing I mean can be seen, for instance, in children; when they find some game or joke that they especially enjoy. A child kicks his legs rhythmically through excess, not absence, of life. Because children have abounding vitality, because they are, in spirit, fierce and free. Therefore they want things repeated and and unchanged. They always say, “do it again!” and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exhault in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exhault in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “do it again!” to the sun and every evening, “do it again!” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike, it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy. For we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we are.” (G.K. Chesterton)
