A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

Amy quote

"If monotony tries me,
and I cannot stand drudgery:
if people fret me and the little things of life set me on edge;
if I make much of the trifles of life,
then I know nothing of Calvary's love."
~ Amy Carmichael
I am challenged by this,
hope it does you too.

I'll have to ponder this quote a bit while I sip my first cup of coffee. Short of an IV it's the best I can do. ;o)

Hugs,
