recollections of an artist

Hi, God.

I am just a mess

It is all hopeless.

What else is new?

I would be sick of me, if I were You, but

miraculously You are not.

I know I have no control over other people’s

lives, and I hate this.  Yet I believe that if I

accept this and surrender, You will meet me

wherever I am.

Wow.  Can this be true? If so, how is this

afternoon – say, two-ish?

Thank You in advance for Your company and


You have never once let me down.


– Anne Lamott

    There is always hope where there is faith. God has never left your side. Start the conversation anywhere, anytime. God is listening and happy to hear from you. And, by the way, control over other people is just an illusion. Never had it and never will.
