I woke up this morning with an upset stomach. But after reading a letter from a wonderful gal and a cup of french vanilla tea (thank you friend) I am cheerful and quite the happy camper. I'm almost at the end of Amy Carmichael's biography and I feel as if I've known her my whole life. There is so much of her in me; I just relate to her. I wanted to share with you some of her quotes:
"Darling, you must never ask God why."
"Where the Will of God and the will of the flesh are in conflict there will be rough water, and if the flesh does not yield to the Spirit there must follow the painful breaking up of hopes and expectations, even as the timbers of that ship were broken up with the violence of waves."
"There is no promise of calm waters for any mariner but our Lord can give faith that can ride out against any high and proud winds and waves. And He can come to our succor though our sea seemeth all to be on fire."
