But ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
   the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you;
or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you;
   and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know
   that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every living thing
   and the breath of all mankind.

Little Things: A Poem by Julia Carney

Little drops of water, little grains of sand

Make the mighty oceans and the pleasant land

Thus the little minutes, humble though they be

Make the mighty ages of eternity

Thus our little errors lead the soul away

From the path of virtue, off in sin astray

Little deeds of kindness, little words of love

Make this world an Eden like the heaven above
