Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss

Continuing to re-read Stepping Heavenward when I can snatch a few moments, usually while exercising in the afternoon, I have jotted down a few quotes to record here.

Katy's mom tells her, "What you need is such a living, personal love to Christ as shall make the thought of being where He is so delightful as to fill your mind with that single thought. Oh, how I wish I could be that focused! But, I find my mind full of the daily duties that need done. Now, I understand that they can and should be done for Christ, yet I find my focus on the actual duty, not the joy in serving Christ, the lover of my soul, in the duty.
