If we want, Christian, to have our heart filled with divine love we must first empty them of the love of this world, its frivilous and sinful customs and then turn our hearts to the one God, our only good and happiness and eternal beatitude
—St. Tikhon

The trick to dressing business casual:

Put on an outfit, any outfit.
Put on heels.

Most foolproof lazy trick in my book so far.

Hiking - I don’t like either the word or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains - not hike! Do you know the origin of that word ‘saunter?’ It’s a beautiful word. Away back in the Middle Ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going, they would reply, “A la sainte terre,’ ‘To the Holy Land.’ And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not ‘hike’ through them.

You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world and there is still going to be someone who hates peaches.

I will absolutely not be coasting into heaven. I will be tripping in. Out of breath and tattered from the journey. Just thankful to be there, falling on my face, skinned knees and all, right into the presence of God.
