Somehow, Frank's effort seemed so realistic with little increments of growth year by year. He also did not live a monastic existence as Brother Lawrence did. His inward and outward growth were simultaneous. I wanted that moment by moment experience of God in the midst of the daily grind of life with "tilting people."
"It is better to go to the house of mourning,than to go to the house of feasting:for that is the end of all men;and the living will lay it to his heart.Sorrow is better than laughter:for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning;but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth" (Eccl. 7:2-4)So, my mourning is over. The fruit of the last three years has been more 24/7/365 than I have ever known in my life. I am 50. I am thankful. I am humbled. I am at peace. I am surrounded by so much love.I am undone.
