I'm sitting outside right now as I'm writing this post. the sun is softly creeping through the trees, and the breeze is quietly blowing through my hair. Sometimes life can be hard, so we don't even notice the small things like these in life. Sometimes when we're drowning in our own struggles it's hard to notice the small things. Like how the sun rises every day, how the birds softly sing in the trees, how the breeze softly blows, how the rain falls to make things bloom and grow, how a baby's laugh fills up and warms a room. Sometimes when we get caught up in things, all we notice is the "important" things, and the other things fade, and don't matter. I know how it is to be caught up in so many things, that i forget about the small things, and don't even notice them. As i type, my sister is doing my hair ;), my sister Annabelle is playing quietly on the deck, and the cool, fall breeze is starting to move in. The trees are juust starting to change color, and the sweet, familiar scent of autumn is filling the air. God wants us do delight in everything in life, not just the material things. I know it's hard to delight in some things... like school, and chores ;) But it delights God when he sees us happy, and he doesn't want us to be sooo caught up in life, that we can even sometimes forget about HIM. Now I'm NOT an any means trying to sound perfect. I often get caught up in things, and don't even spend a minute with God in a day. But how do you sooo often find time for other things/people, and forget about God? I can be accused of doing this sooo many times!
So, today, I'm challenging you (and myself) to notice the small things :)
right now I have this song on replay... try to find a minute today to listen to it!
