always near

“After awhile, as I lay there, I became aware of someone with me, hunkered down in the corner, and I just assumed it was my father, whose presence I had felt over the years when I was frightened and alone.

The feeling was so strong that I actually turned on the light for a moment to make sure no one was there – of course, there wasn’t.

But after a while, in the dark again, I knew beyond any doubt that it was Jesus.  I felt him as surely as I feel my dog lying nearby as I write this.”

~ Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies 


“If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find Me.

I will be found by you,” says the Lord.


~ Jeremiah 29:13-14a
