Some Days . . .

Here's more good stuff from Anne Lamott - to some of my friends out there in the blogosphere who are struggling with life today -

I don't know why God won't just spritz away our hardships and frustration. I don't know why the most we can hope for on some days is to end up a little less crazy than before, less down on ourselves. I don't know why we have to become so vulnerable before we can connect with God and even sometimes with ourselves. . . . .I guess we're not supposed to understand some things. Bono, of U2, who is a Christian, says that his favorite song is "Amazing Grace" and his second favorite song is "Help Me Make It Through the Night" - and most of the time I have to let it go at that.

Amen. Amen. Amen.

It think it is when we Let Go (great book by Fenelon) that God comes in full force.


I couldn't agree more with the verse...but how to implement it into many lives is quite a challenge, isn't it?
