Inhabited Eternity

Today I offer a simple quote from Lilias Trotter, an artist and missionary to Algeria at the end of the 19th Century. She spent lengths of time in Palestine, and wrote Advent-themed reflections as she looked at the land.

The full quote, from her journals on March 26, 1924, reads:

"The first impression of Palestine was of the strangely small scale of everything. But before nightfall one came to realize that this is an intrinsic part – that God wants to show us that nothing is great or small to Him who inhabited eternity in its dimensions of space as well as of time.  It is a pivot land – and pivots are apt to be small things in the eyes of those who do not understand their meaning.”
