Little Things

I just now went to Saija's site to pick out one of her pretty pictures for a project that I am doing and read this good post!
Well needless to say it was SO good that I swiped both the picture and the post!
Now I must hurry down to Saija's again....Still need that picture!!



it's in the little things, that i feel God's love towards me ...
the picture i've posted today is taken from my flower garden ... the "condo central" surprise from the Lord ...
the orange tiger lillies had already bloomed ... i thought the unopened ones were going to be the same colour ... i was wrong ...
instead this lovely lovely shade of lilly appeared ... and do you know that i had just been admiring this very colour in a friend's garden ... lo' and behold - it appeared in my own ...
it's in the little things ...
this morning i woke up sad ... i am generally a happy person and on most days my glass is half-full, if not downright overflowing ... not this morning ...
leo's chronic pain and his inability to do so many things we used to do ... that is sadness personified ... the fact he can't go bike riding with me, or just enjoy a walk around the neighbourhood ... or even go visiting ... the loss of those simple pleasures - well i want to cry sometimes ...
so today, when i wanted to close my computer - turn off the phones - and just have a pity party ... the Lord gave me a hug ... He used the extra e-mail from by BC sister ... which in turn spurred me to go for a bike ride and visit with my aunt and cousin ... then later in the evening, old friends surprised us with a little 30 minute visit ...
the day is ending better then it started!
i love the Lord ... more importantly - He loves me! ...
it's in the little things

GOOD POST SAIJA
I have had life so easy that its hard for me to "understand" the depth of suffering or what it means to really look to the Lord as my ALL IN ALL -
Read many testimonies of HIS GRACE at work in people , I am just scratching the surface of "understanding" this WORK OF HIS --
