It’s the Little Things …

I can be having a wonderful day, no worries, totally relaxed and refreshed, and then one little, minor, insignificant, non-essential, thing happens and my day plummets, my mood darkens, my temperature rises, and I’m in a royal snit. Was it really just a little thing? Several little things can add up to one big thing can’t they? The ‘last straw’ as they say ‘breaks the camel’s back’. Well I have been known to get my back up many times when a cooler head would have saved me so much trouble, pain, and shame.

Lately, though, I have found myself thinking before I speak, biting my tongue, and keeping myself from RE-acting. Have I matured, mellowed, grown up? Let’s hope so. So many years I spent trying to undo what I had done in the heat of the moment. Little things that now I can’t even remember; and if I do remember them, they were not worth the actions or the re-actions.

Lord, help me to remember who I am; I am Your child and as such I want to honor you in all I do. Thankfully You are loving and forgiving. I am blessed beyond words that You have not thrown up Your hands, turned Your back, and given up on me … even when I gave up on You.

You are omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. You are love. You are peace. You are joy. You are kind. You are patient. You are my Heavenly Father. I love how you love me … no matter what.  Amen

 

A name is not a little thing.

      1. I attended a military a few months ago. One of the grandchildren sang it in remembrance of his grandfather. Apparently the grandma sang it there whole life. I bawled…..
