I should desolate for having slept (for seven years) during my hours of prayer and my thanksgiving after Holy Communion; well, I am not desolate. I remember that little children are as pleasing to their parents when they are asleep as well as when they are wide awake...I remember that:"The Lord knows our weakness, that He is mindful that we are but dust and ashes." [ed: I believe this quote is from Psalm 103]
