Does that sound familiar? It is in the midst of these hectic days that I have to be intentional about seeing the wonder of it all. To linger long enough to see and sense the smallest of gifts that He lays at our feet each day.
Have you been able to do that lately? Just for a moment, stop and think how intricately my body works in motion, the colors in our world, the shade of a tree, the warmth of the sun, or the steady, constant rolling of the sea. Can you see them? Can you hear them? How often do we really stop to be in awe of the amazingly, complex world/life around us?
Often I power through my day or agenda so focused I don't look or listen for the little things that really make life breath taking. I don't stop to give thanks for God's creative handiwork, or His complex nature, or His unfailing love shown through this life He has given me. It's the little things that make it all good; even when everything else around me is spinning out of control.
My little things today are:
- hearing my daughter use her gift of music
- a car that will get me there
- sun glistening through the waving palm frond
- the smallest step of progress for my dad
- my soft, comfy bed
Will you join me today in looking for the little things that make His creation a masterpiece? When you see it, whisper words of thanks and praise to Him.
We would love for you to place in the comment section or on our Facebook page a couple of little things that catch your eye today!
