On tuesday night I spoke at our opening Creative Arts evening for 2007. One page I read from Mother Teresas book ‘No greater Love’ has inspired me.

I have had a lot of requests for it, so here it is…

‘Always be faithful in the little things, for in them our strength lies. To God nothing is little. He cannot make anything small; they are infinite. Practice fidelity in the least things, not for the sake of the great thing that is the will of God, and which I respect greatly.

Do not pursue spectacular deeds. We must deliberately renouce all desires to see fruit of our labour, doing all we can, leaving the rest in the hands of God. What matters is the gift of self, the degree of love that you put into each one of your actions.

Do not allow yourselves to be disheartened by any failure as long as you have done your best. Neither glory in your success, but refer all to God in deepest thankfulness.

If you are discouraged, it is a sign of pride, because it shows you trust in your own powers. Never bother about people’s opinions. Be humble and you will never be disturbed. The Lord has willed me here ,where I am. He will offer a solution.’
