We Fly From Him

'Oh, how 
senseless we are! 
The good God 
calls us to Him 
and we fly from Him!
He wishes 
to make us happy,
and we will not 
have His happiness.'

St. John Vianney

  1. This reminds me a little of CS Lewis's quote about being content to play in mud puddles when the Lord is offering us a holiday at the beach.

    1. Oh. I like that image, Deborah! Thanks very much for sharing it.

    2. C.S. Lewis is everywhere for me lately! This post made me think of him as well.
