Thanks for Little Things that Make a Big Difference

Thank you, God,
for the little things
that make such a big
difference in my life:
a few temperatures cooler,
the microscopic enzymes that help me digest food,
the salt that seasons a meal,
a morning kiss from my bride,
a smile from a grandchild,
the respect of my kids,
a well-turned phrase in a book,
a non-stuffy nose,
a few drops of rain,
found money in a pants pocket,
a light that turns green just in time,
an extra ten minutes of sleep,
a "thank you,"
a thoughtful note or text message,
the ability to inhale fully,
walking barefoot in the grass.
Amen.

Amen Bob!..and Amen for the big things we think are little. :)

God has been reminding me lot lately to be thankful for these little things that we so often do not think twice about and/or just take for granted.

I actually was just thinking about writing a post on this last night.

Thank you Lord and forgive me for not being grateful enough for the little things.:)

Great post, Bob. Its beautiful- all the little things. They build up against each other and create one huge thing- an expression of love from God.
My favorites from your list were:
'a well-turned phrase in a book'
'a light that turns green just in time'
and 'walking barefoot in the grass'

As the temp dropped this morning to 72, and only expected to be a high of 93 today, I thank God for a "... a few temperatures cooler.." I will think about the little blessings we are given all day today- because of your prayer.

Thanks, Bob. Look forward to meeting you at the Memphis area ACW workshop in March.
