grace not lost

“He took what is mine in order that He might impart to me what is His.
He took it not to overturn it but to fill it.”

St. Ambrose


(Cades Cove, TN / Julie Cook / 2015)

We must animate ourselves by the thought that God is always with us,
that he only allows this trial for our greater good,
and that we have not necessarily lost his grace because
we have lost the taste and feelings of it.

St. Ignatius of Loyola

    Is that a hornets’ nest in a plum tree? Hornets and bees and wasps scared me when I was a child, and they still make me uncomfortable. I am also not fond of the thorns on plum trees. J.
