Last week my birthday reminded me that little things can be just as important as big things. (Sherlock Homes said, “To the great mind nothing is little.”) Let me share some stories.
While on vacation the week before, my friend sent me a picture that she and her family thought I should put a verse on. She knows how much I enjoy that and she wanted to encourage it. Then her daughter-in-law sent me a message about putting verses on pictures from their recent trip to Israel. Pictures from the Holy Land?! Oh yeah! I am honored to be asked.
While on vacation, my friends daughter found something that she thought I would enjoy. She was right. When I opened the gift I went right for this set of cards that I could color. I enjoy anything creative. I was so blessed that these friends (who know me well) would be thinking of me on their trip. I have already enjoyed creative time with my gift.
I have learned from experience how much those little positive things can bless me. Some of the stories I have shared happened years ago. Some are more recent. No matter when they happened, they bring a smile to my face again and again.
Father God, thank you for the reminders of how much You love me through the thoughts and actions of my friends. You have blessed so much. I praise Your Name.
