Teaspoons and Waterfalls
"We cannot begin to thank God for all His mercies toward us. We are unaware of the vast majority of them -- for instance, your liver at this moment is doing a number of things to keep you alive. Each of us, every day, is standing under a Niagara of blessings, and when we 'give thanks' it is as though we have taken a small teaspoon and ladled out some of the water and given thanks to God for that" (Beyond Stateliest Marble, p. 214).
