Found this prayer from Thomas Merton on Brandon Scott Thomas's blog this afternoon. I'll probably think about it and write about it some time in the future ... or not. I'll hand-write it in my old journal at least. Handbells in 25 minutes ... hope everyone shows up. Frustrating when they don't.

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certainwhere it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following Your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. BUT, I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that, if I do this, You will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust You always though I may seem to be lost in the shadow of death. I will not fear,
for You are ever with me, and You will never leave me to face my perils
