Where we are

As we try to live trustingly in the present moment, the following piece by Ruth Bidgood can help situate us in God’s care.

“No need to wonder what heron-haunted lake lay in the other valley, or regret the songs in the forest I chose not to traverse.

No need to ask where other roads might have led, since they led elsewhere; for nowhere but this here and now is my true destination.

The river is gentle in the soft evening, and all the steps of my life have brought me home.” (quoted from Lost in Wonder, by Esther de Waal)

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23:6)

  2. This is another stellar collection, Fr. Ron. My favs are the view from the window and the sunset over the rocks. Thanks.


    1. Unfortunately I was unable to direct a retreat there this year, but I did get to make my annual retreat there. Always a pleasure to be at Eastern Point.
