I was talking with a friend about the necessity of pressing on with small acts of love and kindness even if it appears to make no difference to the amount of problems, suffering and poverty in the world.
She reminded me of this:
If you think small things don’t make a difference, try spending a night in a room with a mosquito!
So much of what we do in this world seems to be judged by results. Tangible, measurable results, at that. It can seem at times that life is all about facts and figures and that nothing else really matters much.
Peace and happiness are nice sentiments but belong more to the realm of daydreams than real life.
Well, no, actually. Peace and happiness that lasts only five minutes and is experienced by only one or two people is important. Stop and listen to your heart and you will know this truth. There is a deeper reality than the tangible.
What little thing will you add today to the chronicles of heaven that may well go unnoticed on earth?
