The freelancer's petition


“It's a little frightening to pray for today's bread. That means I must pray again for tomorrow and believe again for tomorrow. My greedy heart is willing to be corrupted by a little bit of riches so that I see my warehouse full of loaves. I can make a good argument about how God won’t have to be bothered with me every day if he would only advance me about ten years worth of bread.” 

― Gayle D. Erwin

  1. I hope your bread is always coming down the conveyor belt. Or whatever the analogy would be if I could make it as poetic as this quote. Hah.

    1. Hannah, glad you like the picture. It's an interesting looking church at 79th street and Broadway, and i've always loved its touches of red. Set against that crazy "severe blue" sky, the picture made itself. I was actually in a cab driving by when I took it. Happy new year, sweet friend. May this be a peaceful one for you and your family.

  3. This quote makes me realize how tired I am. Not in a bad way, though -- it just confirms the grueling nature of it all.
