Trying to avert a pity-party. Too much to do. Not enough time to do it in. Never enough time to write.
"Enthusiasm means 'possessed by God.' Soul's seeing of the divine good fills us with enthusiasm for 'all of life's experiences,' no matter what ego says is going on. Ego eyes will never cease to see all manner of difficulties. But what will we worship? To what pay homage? The more our loyalty is to spiritual goodness, the less impressed we will be by the claims of sin and suffering. It is not so hard to take suffering seriously. I have found it far harder to take God and goodness seriously, but that's the challenge." -Ann Tremaine Linthorst, Soul-Kissed
