Small Extravagances - Greenough Park, Missoula, Montana

"The way God squandered Himself had always hurt her; and annoyed her too...Well, of all the spendthrifts, she would think and then pull herself up. It was not for her to criticize the ways of Almighty God; if He liked to go to all that trouble over the snowflakes, millions and millions of them, their intricate patterns too small to be seen by human eyes, and melting as soon as made, that was His affair and not hers. All she could do about it was to catch in her window, and save from entire waste, as much of the squandered beauty as she could."

Elizabeth Goudge (1900-1984), from The Rosemary Tree
