"I am writing two" was the quiet reply. "I have been engaged on one for ten years, the other five."
"You surprise me!" the friend said. "What profound works they must be!"
"It doth not appear what they shall be," said the woman, "but when He makes up His jewels, my great ambition is to find them there."
"Yes, my two children. They are my life's work."
From Elisabeth Elliot
