A Small Field

We had company tonight - new friends we're getting to know. The kids all played nicely (as far as I know!), dinner was a bit of happy chaos, and we talked and talked and talked, and found lots of good relational 'points of contact'. Like, we're home-bodies.

I never thought I would be, but I am. Not anti-social, but happy. With my family. At home.

And it reminded me of this:

We cultivate a very small field for Christ but we love it, knowing that God does not require great achievements, but a heart that holds back nothing for self.
St. Philippine Duchesne

I love being. With my family. At home. Too. It is good to get to know others too though. I the quote that wrote at the end. So true!

I am the same in this respect. Why go anywhere? I've got everything I love and need right here in my home.

And another beautiful quote. Very nice!

I love that concept of cultivating a small field - lots of time and energy into a limited project, rather than spreading it too thin. :0)
