After looking after my sickie brother most of the week, now there’s a sickie sister in the house (!) so here are a few quickie quotes on this Lenten Saturday to contemplate from one of my favorite authors, Madeleine L’Engle..
“God calls us to collaborate with Divine Purpose…but we cannot do it ourselves, we need Everlasting Love, pushing, nudging, if not outright shoving.”
“Perhaps the City of God is not so much a place in space, as a place in the heart.”
“Ultimately forgiveness is a gift of grace rather than an act of will… forgiveness is finally a matter of the heart..”
Madeleine L’Engle (from ‘The Rock That Is Higher’)
