Do The Little Things

Today is St David's Day. Unlike Patrick, George and Andrew, Saint David [Dewi Saint] is a native to the country that regards him as their patron. I have found six facts about him

  1. He was born in a thunderstorm
  2. He was a fine preacher
  3. He was a teetotal vegetarian
  4. He performed miracles
  5. His symbol is a white dove
  6. His legacy lives on in Wales
Born in the year 500, he died on 1st March 589 - now marked as St David's Day. The week before his death he preached a sermon including these words

‘Be joyful, keep the faith, and do the little things that you have heard and seen me do.’ 

Sometimes, just holding on, and doing the little things is all we can do - and they are the things that often matter most. Especially now

Wishing all my Welsh friends a happy day
