Out of the way...

(Picture found here)
“Dear God, I cannot love you the way I want to. You are the slim crescent of a moon that I see and my self is the earth’s shadow that keeps me from seeing all the moon . . . what I am afraid of, dear God, is that my self shadow will grow so large that it blocks the whole moon, and that I will judge myself by the shadow that is nothing. I do not know you God because I am in the way.”
~Flannery O’Connor

Dear God, please re-orient me and remove my self-absorption. May this be a blessed Lenten journey...
