Just started reading a great book, Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.  I can already tell I am going to love it.  The following passage completely resonates with me this morning:

"But I want first of all -- in fact, as an end to these other desires -- to be at peace with myself.  I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can.  I want, in fact--to barrow for the language of the saints--to live "in grace" as much of the time as possible.  I am not using this term in a strictly theological sense.  By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony."

It is just good stuff.
