Do not be surprised that you fall everyday; do not give up, but stand your ground courageously. And assuredly the angel who guards you , will honor your patience.

Wow! Perfect! If ever there was a day I needed to hear that surely it is today!

(And tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that, and...)

Timing is everything. Thanks for posting this quote Victoria.

Why are you up so early when you are on holidays?

it's my only quiet time. I just got home about an hour ago from Christmas with my parents. (my little brother and his fiancée are leaving for Olympia,WA on friday morning)

There must be something about the last few days of a fast...spiritual difficulty...temptation to despair or discouragement...

I need to hear that too.

Thank you.

good stuff, I love that quote :)

Saint John of the Ladder is one of my heros, after Christ our Lord that is :)

Peace out and God Bless,
