Prayer and meditation are our principal means of conscious contact with God.
As we have seen, self-searching is the means by which we bring new vision, action, and grace to bear upon the dark and negative side of our natures. It is a step in the development of that kind of humility that makes it possible for us to receive God's help. Yet it is only a step. We will want to go further.

the 20 yard (20' X 8' X 4') dumpster is now half full, certainly not half empty LOL
thta I am finding items I have not seen in 40 years (ie: children's books and some teenage pictures)
that today I am terminating my Mom's home phone; it's been in continuous service for over 43 years
for those times during each day that I take a moment and speak to my HP
for the different hats I wear as secretary of Lambda Center
for a surprise visit last night from my 27 yr-old nephew
Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh, and the greatness which does not bow before children.
