#spiritualwhitespace


The term whitespace is often used in art and used to describe the part of the canvas or artwork that is untouched or left "white".  Recently I was reading over at (in)courage and came across the opportunity to be a part of a blog launch team for the book Finding Spiritual Whitespace by Bonnie Gray.  I filled out the application and a couple of weeks ago I got an email that I had been accepted to participate.  The tagline is "Awakening your soul to rest".  This book could not have come at a better time for me.  I was finishing up the school year and I was exhausted and desperately needing that rest.  I read the preface and found myself in tears a few times and I knew that God had led me to reading the (in)courage blog on that particular day so that I could participate and find that rest I so desperately sought.  I will share various thoughts throughout the reading that speak to me.




Every Thursday there is a link up (yes, I know today is Friday but now that school is out I am hopefully going to be able to blog a bit more).  Anyway, yesterday's link up- we were asked to choose one of three quotes and tell how it spoke to us.  I chose this one



I honestly don't know that I could adequately express how this speaks to me but the bottom line is that this is where I am.  I am longing for rest, for a space where I can truly be, to rest, to reconnect and dream.  And then, the place to live out those dreams.  

I am really looking forward to sharing more as I read (I have a few things that have already jumped out at me in the introduction alone!)

beautiful words, and yes the book will be a wonderful invitation to slow down, and to 'listen and receive'.
