You attach importance to quantity, but, the Lord considers only quality. He does not calculate how many sweet dishes you offered, but, how many sweet words you uttered, how much sweetness you added in your thoughts. Offer him the fragrant leaf of devotion; the flowers of your emotions and impulses, freed from pests of lust, anger, etc.; give him fruits grown in the orchard of your mind; sour or sweet, juicy or dry, bitter or sugary. Once you decide that the orchard of your mind is His, all fruits will be sweet. And, for water, what can be purer and more precious than your tears, shed not in grief, mind you, but, in rapture at the chance to serve the Lord and to walk along the path that leads to him.
