What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

it's a thankless job

Miss Corynn stood perplexed for a bit before coming to me and pointing something out.

"See this speck here Mama?"

" It's a BUG, but it WANTS to be a stone."

LittleStoneWannabe had its' little beetle wings stuck to the plastic with water. His little legs were a'flailing. Trust me, he did NOT want to be a stone. He wanted to be long gone. We got him out of the catcher and still~he was stuck. Only this time, on my hand.
I'd say the poor guy was outta luck, had such a plight, was dealt an unfair hand, struggled with a terrible lot in life, and was burdened with a heavy load. ((Did I miss any?))

That is, until a compassionate little girl held her finger over him so his little legs could latch on. As soon as he was freed, he flew off without so much as a thank-you.

I feel no pity for the struggling if they are rude and thankless. Serves him RIGHT, I say.
