These Little Nothings

The image paired with the quote below make my heart swell. I saw it a few years back and was reminded of it while writing yesterday's post. It's hard to even put into words how beautiful this little moment is. And, I love how perfectly matched it is with the sweet sentiments from St. Therese of the Little Flower. Hope it makes your heart swell as much as it does mine.

I have no other means of proving my love for You than to throw flowers, that is, not to pass up any little sacrifice, any look, any word, to take advantage of all the little things and to do them out of love… I want to suffer out of love and even rejoice out of love, so I will throw flowers before Your throne. […]
Jesus, what purpose will my flowers and my songs serve You? Oh, I know well that this sweet-scented rain, these fragile petals that have no value, these songs of love of the littlest of hearts — these will charm You. Yes, these little nothings will give You pleasure.
St. Therese of Lisieux
