To begin is easy; to persevere is sanctity. Let your perseverance not be a blind consequence of the first impulse, the work of inertia: let it be a reflective perseverance. -- St. Josemaria Escriva: The Way
Just what I need to read and practice today. I will add it to my new Quotes page.
I've been pulled in myriad different directions for the past couple of weeks, and my brain has been screaming, Noooooo, but some things have to be taken care of NOW. One by one, I'm getting things off my plate, but it's still so full. I will be quite relieved when I can get back to my regular, relaxing schedule and my novel. Rebecca is a little bit indignant at being left high and dry in the middle of the Palouse ... in a car, stuck with her annoying sister, and pontificating father.
I've also been battling a dry cough. Explain how it is possible with all this humidity. I guess it's the AC. I have a humidifier in my bedroom at night to help, but it's not going away. Sigh. The cough is making it hard to practice for Pentecost High Mass. Luckily, we'll have lots of singers (professional ones) so I will not be missed. I think for some, this will be the first time they will be performing a Mozart Mass in the context of an actual Mass. I have to think it will be a fuller experience.
Thanks be to God for everything.
