"Life is a big thing, it's got size, and you shouldn't be applying your passion to puny things."--Peggy Noonan
A few days ago, I used Mother Theresa's words about "small things." Now I'm quoting someone else, saying "Life is a big thing." Are these contradictory?
I had to think about it for a while and decided, no, they're not contradictory at all. For the small things done in great love (Mother Theresa) can become the big things (in the above quote).
I spend my days doing "small things." I go visiting teaching to the sisters in our ward, I write cards, I am on my knees frequently praying for friends and family. All small things. But, I like to believe, they become big things when done with passion and love.
Joy for today: making small things big.
