I feel like we (read: I) sometimes forget to thank the Lord for the small things. It is easy to thank Him for the obvious (marriage, family, friends, a home, transportation, liberty etc), but how often I forget to thank him for the smallest of things. Even though He gives, grants and allows them.
So, when I read this verse….
“Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!” – Psalm 150: 1,2
….I was moved to continually praise Him, according to his continual goodness.
So, this is my “small” list for the day:
*Thank you Lord, for my sleeping, content child.
*Thank you for the cooling weather.
*Thank you for lunch with a friend.
*Thank you for legs that move me through my house, as I clean.
*Thank you for vision so I can see the big tree in my backyard, sway in the wind.
What’s on your “small” list?
