I am touched by your blog! I’ll return.
Thanks, Mary. I look forward to your return. Best wishes and peace!
I reread this post. It captures my heart. I loved the following:
A lot about being Christian has to do with coming down where we ought to be and staying there. Here four-legged critters might have an advantage. Any significant brush with the holy can leave us reeling and unsteady with a tendency forgrandiosity and fanaticism. This is why the more one prays, the more one needs to go around barefoot, sit down, lie down, stretch down upon the earth, and stay in close touch with brothers and sisters who crawl, gallop, trot, and slither.
God bless you,
