something good

I was reading a devotional writing by Soren Kierkegaard this morning and this one paragraph was something I wanted to share with you.

From "Prayers . . ."

     You are not like us;  if we are to preserve only some degree of constancy, we must not permit ourselves too much to be moved, nor by too many things.  You on the contrary are moved, and moved in infinite love, by all thingsEven that which we human beings call an insignificant trifle, and pass by unmoved, the need of a sparrow, even this moves You;  and what we so often scarcely notice, a human sigh, this moves You, You who are unchangeable!
