It's the Little Things

It's the little things in life that bring joy. Tonight, I'm thankful for...

*Morning walks along our winding dirt road.
*A well-written story.
*Shade in our valley.
*Ballet students who want to learn.
*Little girls and their look of delight over a sparkly crown.
*Air conditioning in the car when the temperature outside reads 100 degrees.
*Peaches on sale.

*The snap of a home-grown green bean.
*The ability and resources to create a feast of homemade goodness.
*Pictures of flowers when the heat has made most wither.
*Games with my sister (even when she beats me!).
*Friends who care.
*God's faithfulness every day.

What are you thankful for today?

Yes, the simple things in life are where The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus' Joy, Peace, and yes, RADIANCE that many never notice.

Thank you dear Anna for this reminder ! Love, Mom

Anna, I just posted an entry like this yesterday! Little things really can make a day happy, can't they? The Lord does such wonderful little things for us every day. They're like gifts He gives us, just because He loves us. A delicious meal, a little smile, a butterfly or a bird ... it's important to be thankful for the little things!

Thank you for your post!

Love in Christ,
