Quotation of the Week (24/09)

To meditate, to seek the will of God, is not to know securely what this will is. Far from it! It is to grope for it in the darkness, to often be mistaken, sometimes even to remain for long periods with no response to our pressing questions. It is to run a risk, but it is to persevere obstinately, despite all difficulties, for it is more important to seek than to find.

When I first read the quote, I read "medicate"...
Given the current circumstances in my family (my 86 yr old father-in-law is recently stroke impaired)and all I think about are medical issues.

Try reading it again and substitute my word. Puts a whole different spin on it! :)
