A Christian in whom the Holy Spirit dwells is not exempt from having to experience struggle, temptations, disorderly desires, rebellious feelings… [the difference is that all these things come] upon him against his will.’ They are on the surface. Yet there is a ‘peace in the depth of their hearts. That is like a deep-ocean current always flowing steadily regardless of the wind and the waves on the surface.” –Father Raniero Cantalamessa

Quietness. Darkness. Aloneness.

I’m spending the weekend home alone. The whole family has events to attend and activities to do. I have just turned off the lights and lain in bed. Staring in front of me, I realized I’m enjoying this. I hear only the sound of the fan. No light is left turned on. I’m the only one here. It brings me peace. This is one rare time I’d like to spend more. Unfortunately, as much as I would love to stay up and daydream or write more or play more songs, what I need most now is sleep. I still have a lot of catching up to do. Time to hibernate! Good night!
