Count that day lost...

"If you sit down at set of sun
And count the acts that you have done,
And, counting find
One, self-serving deed,
one word'
That eased the heart of him
who heard
One glance most kind
That fell like sunshine

where it went_
Then you may count that day well spent.
But if, through all the livelong day,
You've cheered no heart, by yea or nay_
If, through it all
You've done nothing that you can trace
That brought sunshine to one's face_
No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost
Then count that day as worst than lost.

~George Elliot

Hi Julie! I love this poem by George Elliot. I am a firm believer in being a blessing in other's lives. I am at home when my day is like this. I am having another giveway at my blog, & would be so pleased if you would drop by & join in the fun if you could. Have a blessed day Julie! Sending you big hugs!

If we don't find Him in the small things, how will we ever find Him in the big ones? ~Elisabeth Elliot
