Two Posts I love from Anne Lamott

I ask, "Is anyone here wearing one green and one orange shoelace?" and a very tell and shy girl will raise her hand, and I will say, "Honey Bear? You are loved and chosen. As is, here and now and always. This is a come as you are system." The girl (who had just gotten arrested for drunk and disorderly) smiled, blushed, and dipped her head like a swan.

A Short Prayer

May God bless you with a restless discomfort about easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may boldly apply the truth of Christ and love as he loved.
