Its been a week of inspiring quotes for me. I’ve come across a few that I’ve heard before and loved a few new ones that have moved me, challenged me, inspired me.
The one I want to share today is
In this life we cannot always do great things. But we can do small things with great love. -Mother Teresa
I actually love this one. It reminds me that sometimes the little things mean so much more.
I can go out a purchase a massive gift for my daughters and don’ t get me wrong they are grateful and happy. Yet in the cuddle on the sofa I see more joy, more love.
I can do a grand gesture for my hubby yet he sees my love in the extra five minutes he gets in bed.
Sometimes small is huge.
Like Jesus said in the temple the rich were giving plenty yet the poor widower gave all she could.
Mark 12:43-44 (NIV)
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others.  They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”
Size isn’t everything. It’s the love that is involved that matters.
