The Practice of the Presence of God is the title of this most well known work/book and it has been a favorite for both Protestants and Catholics for well over two centuries.   (See those years of seminary paid off.)  Thanks John for posting that video and thank you Anne for writing it.........a true pleasure to hear and reflect upon. CW I hope all is well.

Thank you so much John (and Anne) for this lovely hymn. I really love Brother Lawrence, can't remember the name of the book though, can you? I think it suited him very well. As I write this a Fisher Cat is screaming out in the woods here, a yound fawn and mom were crossing the drive a bit ago, nearly hit a turkey mother with her tiny babies skittering after her...had to slow to let a small beaver cross a couple of weeks ago. Brother Lawrence would have loved that all too.
