I'm reading Living Prayer by Robert Benson. This man can definitely write down in words what's in my heart. This is what I read this morning: "We look for saints and for mystics whose words speak to us. We seek out the poets and preachers and pilgrims whose language seems somehow our own, in the hope they will explain what we know we have heard in the depths of our hearts."
When I read something that's in my heart that's written by another person, I have an 'Ah ha!' moment. This was one of those times.
Thank God for the written word and for people who have the gift of expression.
