Little Things


People say "don't worry about the little things", you know I think we should. Not to the point of obsessing over them. God wants us to be faithful in the little things I think, before He gives us big things. I think that everyday miracles are just as important as the big ones.

I even think when He gives us big things, it's important to remember that in preparation the little details are important, it might even be a bigger blessing than we thought.

I would love to win like a million dollars. Take a year or two off of work (cuz you know I make a million dollars a year) and go back to school, and do... a long list of things. But I like everyday miracles. Yesterday I won a free lunch at work. We have a cafeteria at work, I eat there one or two times a week. If you put your name and number on the receipt, it goes in for a daily drawing for lunch. I won yesterday!! WOO HOO!! You would have thought I did win that million dollars, I was so excited!! I think I even shouted a "Thank You God" right there. THEN I came home and Kraft kitchens sent me a calendar with my seasonal subscription, can I get another WOO HOO!! I had just thought earlier that day "I need to get a wall calendar this weekend" and BOOM! God answered my prayers, and I didn't even know I prayed for it, how 'bout that.

God is so good, revel in the small stuff!!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing. —Ephesians 1:3

Attitude of gratitude. Being thankful in all things. You make me smile. I love the title of your blog...there's a lesson in everything (even the small stuff)...You definitely have the right idea.

You've been very upbeat lately. That's a good thing in itself.

I'm just trying to focus on all the positive around me. Because there is a lot of negative, and I can't let the YUCK win. I just can't.

...revel in the little things...
I love it.

I was blessed today when I was finally able to get my kitchen window clean --without the streaks! ...did the 'happy dance' right there in front of my kitchen sink. ...I think there may be a blog blooming here....

And don't tell birmingham girl, but I haven't balanced my checkbook in years.

As I recall, some early American diaries and journals written by Puritians use the term "ordinary mercies" in the same way you use the term "everyday miracles".

Just a little thing I noticed.

Birmingham Girl said...

Deb, stop happy dancing and balance your checkbook!

Margie said...

I've had a checkbook since I was 18, I've never balanced it...

I never bablance my checkbook...hubby does two or three times a week from online banking. Does the happy dance look like me when I'm into one of Jim's Praise and Worship picks?? Show me sometime....and ps...one of the beautiful little things I am thankful for is the silliness we all share. Feelin' God Smile...
