A Thought to ponder.
I was carefully positioning my camera to take a ‘closeup’ of the opened lily in the bouquet of flowers I was given for Mother’s Day. The whole bouquet is beautiful but this one lily was my focus. Imagine my surprise when I viewed it and saw the little face of a small china bear from on the shelf. It was as if what I had overlooked in my focus had suddenly popped up and said ‘Hi!’.
My date pad today has the comment. ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS. ONE DAY YOU MAY LOOK BACK AND REALIZE. THEY WERE THE BIG THINGS.
I was touched by this and then stirred profoundly by my bible reading:
2 Cor. 5:17 For our light affliction which is but for a moment is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.
Be surprised, encouraged this day. Enjoy the little things and hold fast always to what is precious, eternally significant and LIVE ABUNDANTLY. God’s richest Blessings!
