Small Blessings

Small things…. blessings often come in the form of small sources of happiness, grace, and even protection. In this Christmas season, it is nice to consider that I’m surrounded by presents every day. Not just in this season, but into the new year. I want to get better about spending a few moments throughout the day (my often-busy day), to stop and think of something positive, those many small blessings – the clerk at the grocery store who has a large smile and friendly demeanor, the beauty of our Christmas tree, time with my family, the sun shining through the window warming the room, a call from a friend and hearing he/she smile … there are many things that can lift the day, I just need to be better about spending a moment of two to reflect on the many small blessings.

James 1:17  Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

A Simple Prayer of Thanks

"I try to get peace by getting rid of what I don’t like – God gives peace through love by saying, “Be still and know that I am God.”
