The largest of blessings are those that are small.
We’ve all heard of the traditional Irish blessing, but I think this one is perfect for St. Paddy’s Day. It’s one that reminds us that not all blessings come to us as large, showy windfalls from heaven. Some come as subtle reminders of the small things God puts in our lives….and to be be largely thankful for them.
It’s so easy to overlook those small blessings, isn’t it? A smile; a kind gesture; air to breath; clean water; green lights on our way to work :-)……Sometimes we’re just so preoccupied with those big-ticket items on our wish list we don’t pay attention to these small things. But it’s the small blessings that help get us through every day.
Perhaps if we’re grateful for the little blessings in our lives, God will trust us with the larger things our hearts desire.
I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. Philippians 4:11
Kim’s Texture Tuesday’s theme is Color. And I had this color combination formed in my mind long before figuring out the logistics of the shot. I like the soft green of the afghan against the tan backdrop. The ruffled, pink pants were the Investigator’s idea (they’re part of her first dress) and the bonnet is mine from when I was a baby. Twix cooperated like a seasoned model and I’m happy with the result.
