October Quotes

Somehow I ended up with quotes from two Thomas but on two different topics.

From Thomas Merton:
"We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they do or what they have but for their usefulness."

From Thomas Nelson:
"Christians don't pray for the same reason our children don't eat vegetables because they are immature and full of gummy bears."

Dear God, I want to be not just do. Help me to have the time and imagination to do that. Help me to have the desire to pray more. I need to be on my knees before you daily seeking your face and your will. Amen
