  • The Little Things

    The little things are most often the best things in life. Laughter with friends and family, getting a card in the mail unexpectedly, a smile from a friend, witnessing a random act of kindness from a stranger, watching the sunrise and set, finding a french fry at the bottom of the McDonald’s bag when you thought you had eaten them all, getting a parking spot close to the store when it’s raining, reminiscing about a time long since past because you found something while cleaning that brought back the memory, reading a good book, taking a walk on a spring day, having your favorite song come on the radio while driving in the car, having a memorable conversation and the list goes on and on. Yes it is the little things, the small blessings that make up the story of our lives. Sure we have the monumental moments: graduations, weddings, new jobs, birthdays, promotions, etc. but so often the little things get overlooked and yet they shouldn’t because these are the things that make life beautiful. Every moment both big and small make up your life. These small moments are like God’s love notes to His children. Reminding us that He cares very much of the details and of us. Take some time to reflect on the little moments of your life. You just might be surprised just how big those moments really were.

  • Luke 1:46-55 Mary’s Song (Phil Driscoll – The Magnificat Song)

    Luke 1:46-55(NIV)

    Mary’s Song
    46 And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord
    47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
    48 for He has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed,
    49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me— Holy is His name.
    50 His mercy extends to those who fear Him, from generation to generation.
    51 He has performed mighty deeds with His arm; He has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
    52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble.
    53 He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty.
    54 He has helped His servant Israel, remembering to be merciful
    55 to Abraham and his descendants forever, just as He promised our ancestors.”

  • The Serenity Prayer

    It is very easy as people to want to have control over things, even the things we have no control over. I love the Serenity Prayer because it can relate to everyone. We have all been through things we wanted to change but it was something we had no control over. While other times we had the opportunity to change things but we were too afraid to. The Serenity Prayer reminds us how much we need God. When we are going through a hard time and we feel like we’ve lost control it’s because we need to stop trying to be in control and let God take control. It also reminds us that God can use us to change things if we will let Him lead us into the things He asks us to do. When we realize we cannot change anything and we give our everything to God He can work through us to change things.p12b_serenity_prayer
