Little Glimpse

"Both the wisdom and the strength will always be given, in perfect measure, when the time comes, if we take up quietly and faithfully the duties of today. Let us not make the mistake of directing our energies toward what is not today's business. The best preparation for the future is always the conscientious carrying out of what is given us today."
~Elisabeth Eliot


The largest Fire ever known

The largest Fire ever known
Occurs each Afternoon -
Discovered is without surprise
Proceeds without concern -
Consumes and no report to men
An Occidental Town,
Rebuilt another morning
To be burned down again.

Emily Dickinson c.1864



"Lord, send me anywhere, only go with me; lay any burden on me, only sustain me; and sever every tie but the tie that binds me to Thy service and Thy heart."
-David Livingstone
