One of my favorite quotes!

for most of life, I think we fight God. we keep trying to show Him what we were made for. we keep giving him better ideas. we keep working for something bigger & greater than anything he seems to have in mind. for many of us, by the time we are in mid-life, we feel we somehow have missed out on some of the great things we were born for. we fight God over this. i come to you, however, knowing God made me not to impress you and not to be perfect. God made me to be uncomplicated in my faith. to watch children & kites & sunsets & rainbows & enjoy them. to take your hand regardless of who you are or how you look. to listen to you. to accept you right where you are. to love you unconditionally.

That is a beautiful quote Chris. I've read all of Ann's books. I have sort of lost track of her. Is she still writing and speaking?
This one really hits me right where I live. I keep looking for the BIG thing I'm supposed to do and overlooking the things He has truly given me to do (and be content with those). I'm beginning to do better.
