On Guilt:

"Oh sure, there is a built-in guilt that is good and of God and that shows us the way when we forget His goodness and we try out our own…our own way. But I'm talking about the guilt of constant self-critique, of always feeling like a mess, like a wreck, like a fraud. Like someone who lives in fear that she will damage her children and will never get intimacy right or who still has clothes piled up in crevices of her bedroom. And all may be so, but that is not the place for guilt. That is human, and personality and quirks and bents and strengths and weaknesses wrapped up in a flesh that will struggle until that glorious day when the struggle will be gone."
On Advent:

"The miracle of Christmas is that Jesus comes anyway…no matter how much or how little I prepare for his arrival. And really, this is what I want my kids to remember from all of this magic, all of these traditions that we craft successfully or unsuccessfuly for them. Jesus comes anyway, and it's enough to change everything. The earth stands still, and silent and often unaware – and still, she receives her King." Needed this for this year.
