Yunus (Jonah), 61

Today, home alone, I am unable to move past the meaning of this verse.  Yunus (Jonah), 61:

In whatever business you may be, and whatever portion you may be reciting from the Qur'an, - and whatever deed you may be doing, - We are witnesses thereof when you are deeply engrossed therein. Nor is hidden from thy Lord the weight of an atom on the earth or in heaven.  And not the least and not the greatest of these things but are recorded in a clear record.
