“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” Helen Keller
For this week’s Writers Quote Challenge, please share with us a “small task” which you feel you have accomplished in a “great and noble” way.
How “great and noble” are you when it comes to frying eggs, changing tires, picking up toys, teaching manners to your children, making the grocery list, making the bed, playing Candy Land, combing your mother’s hair? Okay, you are on your own. What does this quote mean to you?
For many years I have taught adult Sunday School classes, generally to people who are my peers. It seemed dull to me to teach the same thing we had “learned” many times before. After all what could I say that had not already been said. So I make it a challenge to study, research, pray, google :D, until I find something that I have never known before – even if the story is about David and Goliath! That helps me to accomplish the routine in a more exciting way.
The Writer’s Quote Challenge is a weekly blogging event. Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration. Each Thursday, a hostess will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate. Category: Writer’s Quote Challenge
