Anne Lamott writes about her Spiritual Mentor who started each conversation
Hello, Dearest, I’m so glad it’s you. She goes on to say
I’ve come to believe this is how God feels when I pray, even at my least attractive.
I love this. It puts into writing something that took me years to learn. We can grow up with faulty ideas about God and project human experiences on to that relationship.
So I start each day with some sort of conversation with someone who calls me, dearest.
