The God of small things…

“We have to fight them daily, like fleas, those many small worries about the morrow, for they sap our energies…. The things that have to be done must be done, and for the rest we must not allow ourselves to become infested with thousands of petty fears and worries, so many motions of no confidence in God”.

(Etty Hillesum – An Interrupted Life: the Journal of a Young Jewish Woman, 1941-1943, found here )
