Super excited that this memory book from my Lithuania/Paris trip is finished!

It's a door ...

If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present. 
(Rabindranath Tagore)
In the movie, Temple Grandin, when presented with a door, she walked through it, no matter how scary it was -- or found another way. (By the way, if you have not seen this movie, I highly recommend it!)

I like that first quote so much. I flipped my calendar from October to November today (yes, I know, it's November 14th!!) and that was the quote printed on a red door. I love doors -- the hardware, the color, the intricacies, the locks, etc. When I see a really old door or a door that is different looking, I sometimes think, "Who walked through that door?" or "Who touched the handle? Or turned the lock?" 
Maybe you're faced with a door to choose from. Maybe a door needs to be carved out of something else. Maybe a door needs to be closed or slammed shut. Whatever it is, I do know that something terrific will come --  even though the "present" might not be dark at all.
Here's to walking through the next door!

God hears you ...

"Don't bother about the idea that God 'has known for millions of years exactly what you're about to pray'. That isn't what it's like. God is hearing you now, just as simply as a mother hears a child. The difference His timelessness makes is that this now (which slips away from you even as you say the word 'now') is for Him infinite."
- C. S. Lewis

Hmmm, definite food for thought. Any thoughts on this quote?

This song is really hitting me today ... it's on repeat in my office -- the live version is so amazing. Oh, the words are so true. Lord, thank You for Who You are -- so very faithful, so true, so so good. Praying this song touches your heart today!
