where love is found

"My chief care should not be to find
pleasure or success,
health, or life or money or rest,
or even things like virtue or wisdom ---
still less their opposites pain, failure,
sickness, death.
But in all that happens my one desire
and my one joy should be to know:
Here is the thing that God has willed for me.
And in this, God's love is found."

Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
