The big picture...

"Looking from above, life is a short, often painful, mission, full of occasions to do fruitful work for God's kingdom, and death is the open door that leads into the hall of celebration where the king himself will serve us."  -Henri Nouwen

After reading this quote in a Henri Nouwen book this afternoon I asked myself, am I doing fruitful work for God's kingdom?
I thought about it for a minute before I realized... I work for a church.
So I certainly hope that my work is fruitful, meaningful, otherwise what am I doing?
Yet sometimes its hard to see, I lose the big picture.
So somewhere in the back of my mind... I'm still asking the question...
