Gifts from a Friend

January 5, 2013


“What should I do about the wild and the tame? The wild heart that wants to be free, and the tame heart that wants to come home. I want to be held. I don’t want you to come too close. I want you to scoop me up and bring me home at nights. I don’t want to tell you where I am. I want to keep a place among the rocks where no one can find me. I want to be with you.”
― Jeanette Winterson

“Let nothing disturb you,
Nothing dismay you;
All things are passing:
God never changes.
Patient endurance
Attains all that it strives for;
Those who have God
Find they lack nothing.
God alone suffices.”
