Respite Wednesday


The test of a man's religious life and character
is not what he does in
the exceptional moments of life,
but what he does in the ordinary times,
when there is nothing tremendous or exciting on.

The worth of a man is revealed
in his attitude to ordinary things
when he is not before the footlights.

~~Oswald Chambers~~

Dear Gentle Readers,

Today I carried each name gleaned from the rolls of this blog to my Father. Those of you caring for the young and the old, the sick and the dying, the lovely and the unlovely, the grateful and the ungrateful . . .

May the Lord bless you as you toil this day.

"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me."
(Matthew 25:40)
