Well Said: Stories pull me back

From my quote journal.
I stray, and then mystories pull me back if I listen to them carefully. I have often been asked if my Christianity affects my stories, and surely it is the other way around; my stories affect my Christianity, restore me, shake me by the scruff of the neck, and pull this straying sinner into an awed faith.
Madeleine L'Engle, Walking on Water
I have to say that my own writing, even of the scribbling just to please myself sort, keeps me focused and open to God in a way that nothing else does.
