“…a little bit of this, a little bit of that”

the ramblings and musings of an elementary music teacher and aunt extraordinaire

Thankful Thursday #4 March 29, 2007

Filed under: Thankful Thursday — marlise @ 7:17 pm

I came across the following quote by C.S. Lewis. These are truths for which I am very grateful, and since C.S. Lewis put it into words so beautifully, I’ll leave it as it is.

No amount of falls will really undo us if we keep on picking ourselves up each time. We shall of course be very muddy and tattered children by the time we reach home. But the bathrooms are all ready, the towels put out, and the clean clothes in the airing cupboard. The only fatal thing is to lose one’s temper and give it up. It is when we notice the dirt that God is most present in us: it is the very sign of his presence.

Aren’t you thankful for that presence? I sure am! I’m also thankful that, even as the very dirty child I am, that beautiful home is waiting for me.
