“The first step toward finding God, Who is Truth, is to discover the truth about myself: and if I have been in error, this first step to truth is the discovery of my error.”
Thomas Merton

    Discovering the truth about myself is a life-long journey as God is too merciful to reveal the entire truth all at once. The important and basic truth is that I am a beloved child of God and God’s love and grace are all that I need. Now I need to learn to live that!

    Merton is a favorite, he’s always so clear. Blessings my friend. One of these days I’ll finish my own half-written stuff.
