Seconding the motion

"Did you know that you only ask for what you have already begun to experience?  Otherwise it would never occur to you to ask for it.  

Further, God seems to plant within us the desire to pray for what God already wants to give us, and even better, God has already begun to give it to us!  We are always just seconding the motion, but the first motion is always and forever from God  The fact that you prayed at all means God just started giving to you a second ago  Isn't that wonderful to know?"

Nope, this is just one of the many beautiful items I found at Bedrock Industries (a glass and stone recycle shop in Seattle; same place I found the Buddha and St. Francis and the stone face.)

Rohr is one of the most quotable writers!

That stone recycle shop looks like a great find.

Diane ... thanks for mentioning Bedrock ... wish I could get there but they have a great site which might feed my mosaic appetite.
