a good quote

- excerpt from Simcha Fisher's Why I Love My Ugly Little Liturgy:
My soul is foolish. I’m cheap and jangly. I’m in poor taste, inadequate, irreverent, wanting and paltry in every way. My heart is made of little beige bricks and burlap. And for some reason, God keeps showing up anyway. He doesn’t sneer and hunker down and wait for it to be over when he comes into the tawdry temple of my soul. He doesn’t get out of there as soon as he can.

Oh Lord, have mercy!


  1. I don't think Danielle Bean is ever going to ask me to write for Faith and Family.

  2. Why Not?!? I keep expecting to read a post on there from you.
