Yeshu said, “Come to me, for my yoke is comfortable and my lordship is gentle, and you will find rest for yourselves.”

Gospel of Thomas

………………………………………

The time of action does not differ at all from my time of prayer; I possess God as tranquilly in the bustle of my kitchen –where sometimes several people are asking me different things at one time—as if I was on my knees before the blessed sacrament…It is not necessary to have great things to do.  I turn my little omelet in the pan for the love of God;  when it is finished, if I have nothing to do, I prostrate myself on the ground and adore my God, who gave me the grace to make it, after which I rise, more content than a King.  When I cannot do anything else, it is enough for me to have lifted a straw from the earth for the love of God.

–Brother  Lawrence

In eternity there is indeed something true and sublime. But all these times and places and occasions are now and here. God himself culminates in the present moment, and will never be more divine in the lapse of all ages.

–Thoreau, “Walden”

There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle.

–Albert Einstein.
