I think I’ve indicated that I’ve received a wonderful selection of cards, letters and emails that I find not only encouraging, but thoughtful and heartening. (Heartening, that takes on a deeper meaning, doesn’t it?)
One of my correspondents, had this spin on missionary work: “If memory serves Father De Smet left Saint Louis and ended up at Lake Pend Oreille. You left Lake Pend Oreille for St. Louis….” – I like it!
She also said this scripture had my name all over it: (You decide.)
“We are not discouraged; rather, although our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this momentary light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to what is seen but to what is unseen; for what is seen is transitory, but what is unseen is eternal.” (2 Cor 4:16-18)
I like it also!
