"Bring your lamp to those without light, enkindle the flame of love in those without hope." (Tagore) ~from a holy card I picked up in Rome in 2005 . . .
I began this blog as a place to share some of the things that have increased my hope during challenging times--with the hope that it may do the same for others as well. I welcome your comments.

Wonderful words Thank you for posting
I find them very encouraging as well.
When it seems like the winter of prayer is endless one wonders if one is doing something wrong? There are times when faith seems like an acct of lunacy, yet one knows there is no other way. I would like God to give me a hug and say ” stop worrying. It will all be alright in the end!”
Having just posted the above, I went into one of my files and read this!!
God seeks himself in us, and the aridity and sorrow of our heart is the sorrow of
God who is not known in us, who cannot find himself in us because we do not dare
to believe or trust the incredible truth that he could live in us, and live there out
of choice, out of preference. But indeed we exist solely for this, to be the place he
has chosen for his presence, his manifestation in the world, his epiphany.”
Thank you, Ann, for both of your posts. Your absolute honesty before Him is what God treasures and exactly where He meets us.
Thank-you for the encouragement
