Small Gifts of God

See the source image

God has given us great gifts that can hardly be imagined–His only begotten Son, for starters–but He has also given us small gifts that get us through the day. I was thinking of a few of them, and being thankful for them, as I took my shower this morning.

A nice meal.

A good laugh.

The antics of a kitten or a puppy.

Remembering the taste of the black raspberries my grandpa used to grow in his back yard.

The way you feel after successfully completing a hard job of work, and knowing that you’ve done it well.

But of course we could do this all day. And that’s a gift, too. Thank you, Lord.
