Wallace gave me this. Wallace is one of those terrific whirlwinds who stirs up everything around him — cajoling, energizing, shouting (but with a Southern accent, so it’s impossible not to be charmed) — and I think of this as Wallace’s prayer, though in truth someone just gave it to him and he passed it on to me.
Perhaps there’s a Wallace in your life.
Perhaps you’re a Wallace.
In any event:
So far today, God, I’ve done all right. I haven’t gossiped, haven’t lost my temper, haven’t been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or over-indulgent. I’m really glad about that. But in a few minutes, God, I’m going to get out of bed, and from then on I’m probably going to need a lot more help.
Quote of the Day
Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.~William Jennings Bryan
