7:30 AM. I'm awake. I begin the day by reading from Psalms and Proverbs.
Then, I read the daily entry from A Year with Thomas Merton: Daily Meditations From His Journals.
I read these comforting words:
"There is only one way to peace: be reconciled that of yourself you are what you are, and it might not be especially magnificent, what you are! God has His own plan for making something else of you, and it is a plan which you are mostly too dumb to understand."
