"Give us yourself..."
Mother Stuart said this about prayer: "'Give us yourself' is the best prayer we can pray and 'we give ourselves to you' - no better offering. For we do not know what to ask and what to offer. Leave it all to Him.
She also said: "Let the beauty of nature...steal over each power of our souls and every mood of our mind, that they, teachers sent from God, may make a sanctuary of silence within us..."
I leave early Wednesday for California and there the beauty of nature is all around me. Our retirement home in Atherton has such beautiful trees and flowers and I look forward to my retreat right on the shore of the Pacific which is not so pacific in Santa Cruz. There are many surfers there and one never tires of watching them try to become 'one with the wave'.
