The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.

Psalm 51:17

When it is the one ruling, never-ceasing desire of our hearts that God may be the beginning and end, the reason and motive, the rule and measure, of our doing or not doing, from morning to night; then everywhere, whether speaking or silent, whether inwardly or outwardly employed, we are equally offered up to the eternal Spirit, have our life in Him and from Him, and are united to Him by that Spirit of Prayer which is the comfort, the support, the strength and security of the soul, traveling, by the help of God, through the vanity of time into riches of eternity. Let us have no thought or care, but how to be wholly His devoted instruments; everywhere and in everything, His adoring, joyful and thankful servants.

WILLIAM LAW (1686-1761)

Taken from the book: "Today, Lord, I Will"

Thank you for leaving the sweet comment, I am visiting your site, and it's "just what I needed". I get so wrapped up in "Taking on the day" that I forget so say "good morning" to the "One" who will walk with me today...
I also listen to Loreena, she played in my Store for years, now I'm pretty hooked on Allison Kraus!
Have a wonderful Week!
'til next time,
Barb C.
