O my God, Thou knowest I have never desired but to love Thee alone. I seek no other glory. Thy Love has gone before me from my childhood, it has grown with my growth, and now it is an abyss the depths of which I cannot fathom. -St. Therese
Denise, That was very nice of you to link to my blog.Did you like the story?
Oh, yes, very much! I left a note in the comment box. Hopefully, it will show up. I loved how the verse came to you at just the right moment - and in such an unexpected and serendipitous way. Great metaphor, too. We give our treasures way, like $20 bills and things that we think are hidden treasures. But God gives us something better in exchange for what we give (or what we lose) - the Word of God. Precious. Priceless. Perfect.
