Thomas Merton was a sinner who loved God; you can read more about him here:

His prayer copied here is mine this morning

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone. Amen.

Day 1 of my vacation

My heart leapt when the alarm went off, knowing I didn't have to get up RIGHT NOW; George Bailey was sitting in front of Henry F. Potter asking for $8000 like a miserable little clerk crawling in on his hands and knees.
I then put together our riceless unstuffed cabbage with pork and beef lo-carb dinner just before my lost insulin package arrived via the nice UPS man.
We are now enjoying a mild restful evening; I am listening to Bambi while I type.

............................... a song of sorrow and praise........................................

small insignificant rat bastard loser angry wondering why when helpless sometimes no hope forgive me please change my heart please please

don't care sometimes

I will have nothing to do with a God who cares only occasionally. I need a God who is with us always, everywhere, in the deepest depths as well as the highest heights. It is when things go wrong, when good things do not happen, when our prayers seem to have been lost, that God is most present. We do not need the sheltering wings when things go smoothly. We are closest to God in the darkness, stumbling along blindly.

- Madeleine L'Engle

Thank You LORD for hearing me and not counting my sin against me. Forgive my doubt, increase my faith, satisfy my thirst.

This morning at the lake

Beautiful Savior, thank You for showing us Your glory in so many ways; thank You for the wonder and anticipation of each morning; thank You for blessing my drive to work every single day.

LORD, let me smile more!

“It is not fitting, when one is in God's service, to have a gloomy face or a chilling look.” 
- St. Francis of Assisi
