Vision and the little things

Lord Jesus Christ, Wisdom of God, teach me
To value every little thing aright:
The word to the weary, the widow’s mite;
Bridle my tongue, Lord, that I may not stain
And slander sparrows with the word “mundane” –
Precious are those on whom your eyes alight.
Lord Jesus Christ, Wisdom of God, teach me.

  1. Lovely. You reminded me of a post I had in my drafts…

    • Great sketches, Jessica.

      I like African swallows myself. Even if they’re non-migratory. (Monty Python joke there; apologies if you’re not a Pythonite.)

  2. Thanks, David! I couldn’t draw the African swallows, though, because I didn’t know their air speed velocity.
