 "I guess it's like discovering you're on the shelf of a pawnshop, dusty and forgotten and maybe not worth very much. But Jesus comes in and tells the pawnbroker, "I'll take her place on the shelf. Let her go outside again."
- Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith

I sit here
amazed at the way Jesus
changed Anne Lamott's life
and at the way He
has changed mine.
I actually have thoughts now-
real thoughts - good thoughts,
one's that promote me to
do something of worth.
I actually have a purpose,
I actually have something
worth striving for.

I think that this is the simplicity of hope.
