Praying for people I resent always helps me feel better. But sometimes it helps me feel better just a tiny bit more slowly than I like.
When I doubt that God is giving me what I need -- and that it is infinitely and profoundly better than what I want -- the best thing I can tell myself consists of just three little words: Wait and see. Because when I do, when I look back over a stretch of life and see just how things came together, I'm always dazzled and moved at the graceful synchronicity of it all.
More meetings generally equals a quieter head.
Service is a joy, and the times when I have been fully present for a sponsee, focused intently on listening to them and helping them, are some of the times I've felt closest to something Bigger than myself -- a connection, a channel, to a Higher Power. It is a privilege, and something for which I will always be grateful.
