take two

"Times of prayer are times of growth. Cut those times short and many well-filled hours of work may be profitless. Heaven's values are so different from the values of earth...[O]ne poor tool, working all the time, but doing bad work, is of small value compared with the sharp, keen, perfect instrument, used only for a short time but which turns out perfect work." February 28: Perfect Work, in God Calling

"When I wake up in the morning, I can't decide whether to enjoy the world or improve the world; that makes it difficult to plan the day." EB White (Although, sidenote: I sorta think we improve the world by enjoying it in an authentic way. By finding that place Buechner speaks of, "where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet." You know?)
