A life need not be great to be beautiful. There may be as much beauty in a tiny flower as in a majestic tree, in a little gem as in a great mountain, in the smallest creature as in a mammoth. … A beautiful life is one that fulfils its mission in this world, that is what God made it to be, and does what God made it to do.—J. R. Miller, In Green Pastures
This is a great reminder. I so often have grand ideas of what I’d like to do or be, but maybe God’s plans for me are smaller—and no less significant.
