This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Anne Lamott Quote For the Day

Another of my very favorite authors is Anne Lamott. If you haven't heard of her, you MUST check her out. She's Christian but extremely edgy!! (And ouch-y!) Love her. (Don't let the photo scare you. She has a lot to say about the hair in her books!)

I recommend you start with her Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith.

In the wake of my entry yesterday on aging...thought I'd share this Lamott-ism with you today.

"All the older people who are thriving have stayed physically active--there are exceptions, and everyone knows someone who smoked two packs a day and had a few social beers with breakfast every morning who lived to be 85, but you have to assume that this won't be you. "
From Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith.

Ok. I love your daughter. And now I love you. Traveling Mercies is my all time favorite book (followed by The Brothers K by James Duncan.) I love me some Anne Lamott. :)
