Duc in Altum

I've been very restless these past few days but this from Thomas Merton reminds me...

"Every moment and every event of  life on earth plants
something in the soul. 
For just as the wind carries thousands of winged seeds, so each moment
brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in our minds and wills ...."

and this ... 

Duc In Altum - Put Out Into The Deep

Go forth on purple swell

Be as unwavering as heavenly streams of light

Take with you only that which is of God

Go forth on purple swell

And when your work is done

Your deeds will tell

Of one that listened

And listened well.

                                              Well, that's the general hope anyways.......
