“A pure, simple and steady spirit is not distracted by flitting about from one thing to another, for he does all things to the honor of God and tries in his heart to be free from all selfishness.” – The Imitation of Christ, Ch. 3
Oh to be a pure, simple and steady spirit, and to not let my passions and emotions get the best of me!
This quote makes me think of the gorgeous old oak trees back “home” where I’m from in Louisiana. Talk about simple and steady. They don’t even let hurricanes get them bent out of shape (usually).
