“We sometimes get impatient doing simple little things, like stitching buttons, washing gloves- the trifling tasks life brings- we think we’re wasting precious time and grumble terribly- because we think we’re fitted for a higher destiny. . . .
But God did not despise the doing of the tiny things- He must have spent a lot of time on making flowers and wings- He made the mountains and the seas, the whirling worlds on high- and yet He designed to make the ant, the bee, the butterfly- the spider and the snowflake and the smallest bird that sings- so surely we with grace and care can do– the little things.”
