thank god for understanding



I have not the courage to search through books for beautiful prayers ... Unable either to say them all or choose between them, I do as a child would do who cannot read -- I say just what I want to say to God, quite simply, and [God] never fails to understand.

~ Saint Thérèse of Lisieux ~
French Carmelite nun, canonized in 1925
