Desiring Life

Where have you been? Where are you going? And why?

Saturday Citation: Frederick Buechner

Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom and the pain of it no less than the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.

    I honestly don’t think I have ever listened in boredom. I wonder how much richer my life would be if I truly experienced all moments and key moments.

    What do you think of the verse in Job that says the Lord gives and takes away. I’d be interested in reading a blog entry on your thoughts on that.

    Thanks Matt. I’ll keep that Job verse in mind and see if God gives me anything to write regarding it. I enjoyed looking at your new blog set up, too.
