The Little Things…

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that lift our spirits… And that dogged determination to do what we’ve committed to on days we’d rather not, that helps too.  So, did I say I was going to make a point to hike up Scout once a week?  That once-a-week stuff comes around awful quickly.  Anyway, there’s more than one way to get up Scout, so for variety I came up from another angle following the Sunshine Coast Trail…

…and here’s what I found…


…wild currant bushes creeping into bloom.

Catching some sun on a mossy (wet seat, oops!) clearing I had time not only to vent some frustrations to the Maker of Creation but to stop and look at His gifts to me this day…unseen gifts of continuing grace and faithfulness… and little tiny beautiful things with texture and color and life…


(Doesn’t this drop look like a little earring?  My apologies for the lack of focus…)

The Moss is all excited about spring—putting out bouquets underfoot…

Surely God cares about the little things that seem so big to me for He makes even the tiny things beautiful. And here it is, beauty springing up underfoot when I take time to look.

 ‘He has made everything beautiful in its time.’ Eccl.3:11


“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”—Lk.12:28
