Nothing Small

"There is nothing small in the service of God." 

St. Francis de Sales


  1. Love the changes and the painting! This quote by St Francis de Sales is one to keep over my work space,
    my heart, in going about the small details and the seemingly multitude of services during my day. A good reminder to offer up everything to God as it belongs to Him, after all. Love the light in this painting and the pregnant woman facing it. Thank you Nancy for this inspiration in the first light of day.

  2. Hi Nancy,
    I love this quote! I personally believe that the small things are the great things in God's eyes because our lives are mostly made up of these "small things". Since these small things take up the largest portion of our days they are great things indeed!

    Excuse me while I go do some

    1. Thanks to both of you! I love this quote as well - I find it striking in its simplicity and brevity (which exactly fits what it says, doesn't it?).

      Mary, I know God has been well served by your laundry duty! A friend of mine (mother of 10) used to say a prayer each time she folded a pair of socks when her children were little. I suppose she prayed all day long :)!
