Two Thoughts for the Keeper at Home:

If monotony tries me, and I cannot stand drudgery; if stupid people fret me and the little ruffles set me on edge; if I make much of the trifles of life, then I know nothing of Calvary love. Amy Carmichael

“If a sudden jar can cause me to speak an impatient, unloving word, than I know nothing of Calvary love, for a cup brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one drop of bitter water however suddenly jolted.”Amy Carmichael

Oh how true! How exposing! Makes me cry, "Change me Lord!"

Hi Editrix and a woman found!
These are challenging quotes; aren't they?

I love what she says at the end of the poem this quote came from: Lord, teach me what I do not know.
