Little Things

This Thanksgiving be thankful for all the little things!

It’s the little things in life that matter most and make our journey worthwhile

Like watching the way a mother holds her baby and the heartfelt love seen in her smile

Cute little things like the joy of a little girl or boy, when playing with their best buddy

Or the way their tiny face lights up with wonder the first time they see a puppy

Comforting little things that warm you like homemade soup or a fire on a cold day

Being together, holding hands, cuddling, a caress, or tickling in bed as you play

Tender little things such as hugging someone just because they need you there

When it’s enough for them to see your face or the smell the fragrance of your hair

Romantic little things that make you fall in love forever with that special someone

The laughs and tears through both the hard and wondrous years that can never be undone

Sad little things not often remembered, until it goes away or they are no longer around

A favorite place to eat, a childhood friend, a bark to greet, or a familiar song or sound

Funny little things like getting soaked in the rain when you locked the keys in the car

Or realizing others are watching as you both close your eyes and wish upon a star

Grateful little things like the kindness of a stranger who selflessly performs a good deed

Or a friend who knows when you are in trouble and prays for the Lord to help you succeed

Spiritual little things like loving your neighbor, showing kindness, and staying humble and meek

Not judging others, practicing the golden rule, helping the poor, and turning the other cheek

Hopeful little things like getting on your knees and praying; I can’t, you never said I could

But knowing all along that God was with you and that He can and always said He would

Faithful little things, some small as a mustard seed, like a child’s simple prayer each night

Recalling a helpful passage, the hope of salvation, and Jesus there keeping you in His sight

All of life’s beautiful little things that He orchestrated, to make you smile, and to help you see

How glorious it will be with God in Heaven, every little moment, and for the rest of eternity

Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.

James 3:4

So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Matthew 17:20

Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin

Zechariah 4:10

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much

Luke 16:10

“I cannot you never said I could. You can, you always said you would”

Major Ian Thomas
