Wednesday (with Words)

St Jerome in his study.For it is good to cleave to God, and to put our hopes in the Lord, so that, when we have exchanged this poor life for the kingdom of heaven, we may cry aloud: ‘Whom have I in heaven but thee? There is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.’

Assuredly, when we have found such wealth in heaven, we may well grieve to have sought after poor passing pleasures here on earth.

–St Jerome, Patron Saint of All Grumpy Scholars 


Wednesday with Words


  1. When I listened to Pam’s podcast with Dr. Perrin yesterday he talked about teaching math from a perspective of it’s infinity and changelessness. I wish I could find the exact spot. Argh.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that sometimes, when we’re doing it right, those poor passing pleasures we seek here on earth point us to God and His heaven.

    Thanks for joining in.

  2. Thanks so much for the link to Pam’s new podcast. I hadn’t listened to it yet…but now I’m going to add it to the new edition of Flourish! There’s a giveaway of Your Morning Basket in there too!
