We can do no great things

Mother Teresa said "We can do no great things only small things with great love."

I have been wrestling with my career choices over the last few weeks. There are some issues at work that have me considering changing careers ~ A friend told me that God puts certain people in our life as emotional sandpaper - they rub us the wrong way to smooth out our rough spots. Well, God has put my emotional sandpaper in the form of my boss.

Today a coworker stopped by my office and shared her view of the current conflict in our department. The few minutes she spent was a small thing - but it meant touched my heart more than she will ever know - so I created a Thank You note for her using Mary Sunday Sketch Challenge.

My prayer to night is: Father, help me to be sensitive to the goodness in others and to be less critical of those whose priorities differ from mine ~ Amen.
