Anybody who prays the Liturgy of the Hours will recognize this as the psalm that begins every day. It ends (in the Grail):

Forty years I endured that generation.
I said, "They are a people whose hearts go astray
and they do not know my ways."
So I swore in my anger,
"They shall not enter my rest."

When I first started praying the office, I was about 30, and so I would think, "I only have about 10 years to straighten up!" Obviously, I can only rely on His mercy now.


This year will mark 40 since I entered the Church. So I guess time is about to run out for me, too.
