Sometimes its the little things that make the biggest difference in contented living. While waiting for the BIG things, if we keep our eyes and hearts focused ahead on what is to come, its easy to miss the little joys provided by the Lord each day.
I don’t want to miss the joys of the “little things” while we wait for the big ones. Do you? Its actually fun to list them out, so here are some of the “little things” (that really aren’t so little) that are keeping my heart glad this summer:
-a cell phone with internet capabilities so that I can somewhat stay connected while not near my computer or internet service. (BTW, I’m reading many of your blogs, but am having a tough time replying via the phone. Still learning but thankful I can stay cought up…)
-the wonderful family who has graciously opened their apartment to our family to live in this summer. If we had moved to Cleveland the way “I” would have planned, we may never have known these precious new friends!
-the fact that our family doesn’t mind being “close” – because that’s what we are these days! (We laughed and decided that whenever we do move into our new house, we’ll have to have a designated time when we all pile in on top of each other just for old time’s sake.)
-the complete removal of my fear of driving. I’ve had multiple opportunities to get over that one!
-air conditioning. Need I say more about that?
-the time we are getting to spend with my mom, and the help & encouragement she has been.
-you, laughter, family, friends, a husband who seeks God’s Wisdom, and knowing that God has the little and the big under His gracious and loving control.
What are you thankful for today? (Or in a more grammatically correct way: For what are you thankful today?)
