They went out to do their work, and to them was fulfilled the old saying: “I, being in the way, the Lord met me.”  Jesus Christ will come to you and me in the street if we carry the waiting heart there, and in the shop and the factory and the counting-house and the kitchen and the nursery and the study, or wherever we may be.  For all things are sacred when done with a hallowed heart, and He chooses to make Himself known to us amidst the dusty commonplaces of daily life. – Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910), from a meditation on John 21.2.
