Here's from the sidebar of  CATHOLIC WEBPHILOSOPHER,, a blog created and maintained by a priest and a professor of a university in Florida. I have enjoyed reading his reflective posts. I hope you will, too.

Thoughts in Solitude (Thomas Merton)

My Lord God,
I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself,
And the fact that I think
that I am following your will
Does not mean that I am actually doing so.
But I believe that the desire to please you
does in fact please you.
And I hope I have that desire
in all that I am doing.
I hope that I will never do anything
apart from that desire.
And I know that if I do this you will lead me
By the right road
though I may know nothing about it.
Therefore I will trust you always
though I may seem to be lost
And in the shadow of death.
I will not fear, for you are ever with me,
And you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

I love the way you present the blogs written by Priests, and pay tribute to them.

I hope school is going well for you. It's fantastic you've cast your net into the deep and continue to further your education.

Kind regards my sweet lady.
