its free…

Mikhail Ivanovich Ignatiev’s Life is so good (1917)

Our first gift from God is our heart.  He gives it to us free.  It is a piece of earth with stones.  You must  dig each day and plow each day taking away the stones to make the earth of your heart ready to yield a crop a thousand fold.  It takes hard work every day to work the earth of your heart to give a crop of sweet grapes.

“If we do not see the beauty of God in this life then we will never see it in the next life.  We must see the glory of God in the smallest flower.”

~Abbess Makrina
