A new essay by Denise on ‘Cultivating’ – an online Publication

Cultivating_WelcomingRest

For someone Tropic born and bred, like myself, the season of Winter can conjure conflicting responses—breath-taking emotions of worshipful silent wonder or lonely feelings of cold, bitter dreariness. Whatever your posture towards Old Man Winter, I have a delectable treat to offer! With more than two months of cold temperatures and curtailed activity yet to weather, I invite you to click over to The Cultivating Project’s Winter issue! —It will, yes, ‘warm the cockles of your heart!’ More than chicken soup, this issue, with its theme of ‘Welcoming Rest’, will do your soul good. I was again blessed to have an essay of mine, The Labour that Welcomes to Rest, included in its excellent fare. Enjoy! Also, don’t forget to leave a comment and share with anyone you know who longs for beauty and truth! And who doesn’t?

Author: Denise S. Armstrong

I am Denise Stair Armstrong - worshipper. My purpose is to glorify God by enjoying Him in all of His Creation, among His People, His Bride, the Church; accentuating His glorious Bridge of reconciliation — the Cross of Jesus Christ — through words laced with His Truth, and cast abroad in the world He loves, and died and lives again to save. I was born and raised Jamaican, where I also received my formal education at Shortwood Teachers' College and the University of the West Indies, specializing in English Language & Literatures in English. The remainder of my education was gained by homeschooling our three wonderful children (Joseph, Charis, and Timothy) and parenting them with my husband Claude. My passion is worship expressed primarily through writing inspirational pieces that urge readers not to miss how much the Lord has "cramm'd earth with heaven", to quote Elizabeth Barrett Browning. My heart is to encourage community, in the best sense of the word, through exalting the cross of Calvary. I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, gardening, theatre and ballroom dancing (only with Claude!) and digging into the Word of God.

  1. Your words, “Instead He was regularly seen slipping off to private times with the Father, never refusing the Spirit’s call and welcome into rest,” are such a powerful reminder. Thanks!
