At about 2:30 this afternoon, I am going to do something that I've never done before. I'm going to have a root canal. Needless to say, I am NOT looking forward to it. To be sure, I will be knocked out during the procedure. I am just hoping that it won't take too long to recover.
Also needless to say, I won't be able to produce another Bible study today. I'm hoping to get one up tomorrow, but if not, it will be Monday. Please pray for me.
In the mean time, I thought I would share with you another brief article that my friend on Facebook sent me. Enjoy.
I COME TO THEE IN SMALL THINGS
I come to thee, My child, in the very smallest things, in the humblest details. Each one of thy getsures can in itself become an expression of limitless Love.
Thou dost wash a plate. Thou dost dry it. Let these actions carry within them love towards all those who have eaten off this plate, toward all those who will eat off it.
A woman goes out of door. She goes to hang the washing on the line so it will dry. Does this rapid movement of service not remind thee of something? Those two arms, spread out for an instant, do they not make thee think of two other arms which were stretched out on sacred Wood?
Everything becomes sacred, if thy love transfigures it.
Love Himself is amongst us as He who serves.
Fr. Lev Gillet, In Thy Presence, page 43, SVS Press 1977
