Monastery of the Visitation


Omar the candle maker is outside his house & he's busy looking through the grass.
He's feverishly looking for something when his neighbour comes out & says to him, "Omar what are you looking for?"
 He says "I have lost my wallet." His friend says "Where did you lose it?" He says "I lost it in my house, in my bedroom."
His neighbour asks "Well why aren't you in your house & bedroom  searching for it?"
 Omar replies "Oh it's too dark in there. It's much nicer to search out here in the sunshine."

How often do we look for God in the wrong places?
