Maker of Heaven and Earth (All Things Bright and Beautiful)
by Cecil Frances Alexander

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
And all things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

This verse was adapted by the vet James Herriot (Alf Wright) to give the titles of his books.

It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930), (Sherlock Holmes)

If we attend continually and promptly to the little that we can do, we shall ere long be surprised to find how little remains that we cannot do.
Samuel Butler (1835 - 1902)

Dingdong...here is a couple of quotes that may apply.

" Lionheart
~


“The idea - that God uses small hands to accomplish great deeds - could almost be called the heart and soul of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.”
- Jim Ware



“Hope and salvation, Tolkien seems to say, often arise in small, unnoticed corners. Like a hobbit-hole in the Shire. Or a manger in a Palestinian stable.” - Jim Ware,
Finding God in the Lord of the Rings

A story that I find inspiring (found on the Internet)

God's Wings
An article in National Geographic several years ago provided a penetrating picture of God's wings... After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage. One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. When the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast. Because she had been willing to die, those under the cover of her wings would live.

"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge"
~ Psalm 91:4

This is the chorus to January Lullaby by Coope Boyes and Simpson;

Is an angel watching over
Guardian saving us from harm
Maybe if we dare to dream
Of white wings folding soft and warm

It sounds glorious when they add their harmonies.

Henry

“If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts he shall end in certainties.”

I found this quote in today’s selection by Sir Francis Bacon. Would anyone say this is a true statement especially when it comes to matters of faith or religion?

“ Lionheart
