All my life,
in nameless, indeterminate ways,
I'd tried to complete myself with someone else-
first my father, then Hugh, even Whit, and
I didn't want that anymore.
I wanted to belong to myself.---Jessie, p. 318

(The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd)

When you pray, don't tell God how big your mountains are.
When you pray, go to your mountains and tell them how big your God is.--Joel Osteen, preacher

    This reminds me of the song you taught the kids:
    "My God is so strong; My God is so mighty. There's nothing my God cannot do." I love the part about showing the mountains how big My God is.
