Truths Gleaned, Time Redeemed

One doctor’s appointment + two hour wait = one entire book read via Kindle.

The nurse apologized several times for the wait, but I barely noticed while reading the classic Practicing the Presence of God, by Brother Lawrence much like one excavating a mine for gold:

  • “That in order to form a habit of conversing with God continually, and referring all we do to Him; we must at first apply to Him with some diligence: but that after a little care we should find his love inwardly excite us to it without any difficulty.”
  • “There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful, than that of a continual conversation with God.”
  • “When He finds a soul penetrated with a lively faith, He pours into it His graces and favours plentifully.”
  • “That we ought to act with God in the greatest simplicity, speaking to Him frankly and plainly, and imploring His assistance in our affairs, just as they happen.”

One Kindle + two hour wait = truths gleaned, time redeemed.
