musings from Cammie

I was reading a book called "Traveling Mercies" by Anne Lamott tonight and I wanted to share something from what i read. "But the way I see things, God loves you the same whether you're being elegant or not. It feels much better when you are, but even when you can't fake it, God still listens to your prayers. Again and again I tell God I need help, and God says, 'Well, isn't that fabulous? Because I need some help too. So you go get that old woman over there some water, and I'll figure out what we're going to do about your stuff.' Maybe on that day, when my friend asked God for energy that morning, God said, 'Well great, because your friend's kid needs a ride to school. Could you do that for me? And I'll be getting you some strength'."
