Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Day 4 in the Year of Our Lord 2012

Woke up with a headache today (so what else is new?!)  It hung around most of the day.....just a dull ache.....just enough to be aggravating!  But, since I took my tylenol PMs (generic brand) it has finally gone away!  Just in time for me to go to bed!  At least I should be able to go to sleep with no problem!

Today I worked on a digital kit, the elements portion, of a collaboration I'm doing with a fellow designer from Digitals.  She is a super sweet lady!  Lives in Louisiana.  She lost her husband not too long before Christmas last year.  Very sad to lose a spouse anytime, but right before the holidays must really be tough!  But, there is a purpose in it, even though we cannot see one!  Today's quote from Helen Steiner Rice is:

We love the sound of laughter
And the merriment of cheer,
But our hearts would lose their tenderness
If we never shed a tear.

I never thought of a good reason for the need of tears before!  I could still do without them on numerous occasions!  I hate when the emotions are running on high gear and I can cry at the drop of a hat!  Oh, well!  Some day we will not shed anymore tears!  What a glorious day that will be!

Today appreciate the importance of both laughter and tears.

Until tomorrow.....

My heart goes out to your friend. I'm sure this Christmas was super hard for her. Thank goodness she has caring friends like you Vicky. Holidays are still hard for me, three years after losing my precious Frank. Holidays were the time he was off work, relaxed, and such an important part of our family gatherings, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. We laugh more now, but the tears still flow as well. ♥
