Scattering flowers ~

Love proves itself by deeds, so how am I to show my love?  Great deeds are forbidden me.
The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers, and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love. — Therese of Lisieux

Holiness' Disposition

Holiness does not consist in this or that practice; it consists in a disposition of heart which makes us humble and little in the arms of God, well aware of our feebleness, but boldly confident in our Father’s goodness.
