Meeting in the Meadow: A Few Quotes

A Few Quotes 

Let me tell you what real surrender is. It is simply resting in the love of God, as a little baby rests in its mother’s arms. –Fenelon



We are not often called to great sacrifice, but daily we are presented with the chance to make small ones—a chance to make someone cheerful, a chance to do some small thing to make someone comfortable or contented, a chance to lay down our petty preferences or cherished plans. This requires us to relinquish something—our own convenience or comfort, our won free evening, our warm fireside, or even our habitual shyness, reserve or pride. –Elisabeth Elliot
