The Dallas Mavericks, Lady Gaga & The Image of God

"We were all born to be super stars." a quote by Lady Gaga, I hear the echos from the Eternal One often in the most unlikely places. A few weeks ago while falling into the pit of despair one dark night I heard this quote and it struck a cord within my soul. Stephani aka Lady Gaga said it with such conviction.

The Trappist monk, Thomas Merton in New Seeds of Contemplation says: "Despair is the absolute extreme of self-love. It is reached when a man deliberately turns his back on all help from anyone else in order to taste the rotten luxury of knowing himself lost."

Dirk gladly took the help of his friends during the Championship basketball game on Sunday night and since he is a humble man despair did not touch him because... he was born to be a super star just like you and me. Don't despair because you still have the 4th quarter to shine baby.

God has strange ways of grabbing our attention , that is true.

Merton's thoughts on despair conjure up a real visual here of choice...it always come down to choice, doesn't it?

Glad I bumped into your blog today.
