On the most excellent advice of KB, I bring you the first of my snippets.
From Elizabeth Prentiss's, "Aunt Jane", p 264, as an older lady shares a look back on her life with a young lady.
Life looks very strange and impressive as one casts on it a backward glance. Perhaps you fancy that it looks insignificant. But it does not. On the contrary, even its little details have an importance of their own; just as moments make hours, so trifles make life; not one can be spared out of the great whole, each has it's own account to give to God.
Trifles make life.
