“I’m in love with your honor, I’m in love with your cheeks.”
“Are you more devoted to your idea of what Jesus wants than to Jesus Himself?”
“If they are wrong they need your prayers all the more; and if they are your enemies, then you are under orders to pray for them.”
I still have the first letter that you wrote to me. I carry it with me like a garden in my pocket.
If you come to me at this moment
your minutes will become hours
your hours will become days
and your days will become a lifetime.
I am never sure if I am reading the letter or the letter is reading me.
— ~ Gregory Colbert, Ashes and Snow: A Novel in Letters, Letter 74
“He is always doing something—the very best thing, the thing we ourselves would certainly choose if we knew the end from the beginning. He is at work to bring us to our full glory.”
