I can do it myself, thank you

We have all realized, more or less, that without Him we cannot live our religious life, but when it comes to living our so-called temporal life, to keeping house or transacting business, or making calls, or darning stockings, or sweeping a room, or trimming a bonnet, or entertaining company, who is there that even theoretically thinks such things as these are to be done for Christ, and can only be rightly done as we abide in Him and do them in His strength?—Hannah Whitall Smith

That dichotomy again. All of our life is God's—yes, even cleaning toilets! Good thing, too, because around here in the summer, there's a lot of them to clean! : )
