"It is sometimes a small matter that hindereth and hideth grace from us; at least if anything can be called small, and not rather a weighty matter, which obstructeth so great a good.
And, if thou remove this, be it great or small, and perfectly overcome it, thou wilt have thy desire.
For immediately, as soon as thou givest thyself to God from thy whole heart, and seekest neither this nor that, according to thine own pleasure or will, but settlest thyself wholly in Him, thou shalt find thyself united and at peace; for nothing can afford so sweet a relish, nothing be so delightful, as the good pleasure of the Divine Will."

"If at any time this life of ours grows feeble, or low, or lonely, I know no other remedy than to return to its Eternal Source, to God Himself; and through Him all the means of grace become again living and true; and through Him all His creatures become again near and dear and accessible." ~ELIZABETH RUNDLE CHARLES

This picture is one of my favorites! I found it while looking for another painting at allposters.com, and saved it to my computer. Shhh! ;) (The problem with doing it that way is that often they'll have a watermark or something on them so a person can't copy them. Sometimes it works though, like this time.)
