another speaking of empty-handedness

Anyone who's been here awhile has read about empty-handedness before God: the pearl of great price, the prayer of St. Therese, the teaching of our own Archbishop Rembert, and others. I've just read another such passage, from a somewhat less likely source:

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say "I used everything You gave me." ------Erma Bombeck

Erma's books were so enjoyable... she was a sad loss. Thanks for the great quote!
