I have found it quite enlightening to discover that two of my daughters are putting their thoughts on blogs these days. As my daughters have gotten older, it seems like I know less and less what goes on in their hearts. I think this is natural, but still unfortunate. I miss the days when they were like open books. So I am happy to have a chance to read Amanda's and Emily's blogs. Good stuff! Keep up the good work, girls! I hope you don't mind my reading over your shoulders...
I have some quotes for you today:
Jesus did not come to do away with suffering or to remove it. He came to fill it with His presence- Paul Claudel
Man has places in his heart which do ot yet exist, and into them enters suffering, in order that ehy may have existence- Leon Bloy
Trust the past entirely to the mercy of God,- St. Augustine
the present to His tender love,
and the future to His providence and care over you.
