Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

big and little blessings...


big (and little) blessings

I must have taken dozens
of photographs of the daylily
over a span of many years
and with different cameras.

Still, I am drawn back,
again and again,
to capture its beauty.

Daylilys are everywhere blooming
right now... you can see them
in large groupings in yards
and along the roadside.

With all their showy beauty
it is impossible
not to notice them.

Even so... more beauty awaits
those who take the time to look
a bit closer. These less noticeable blooms,
just as beautiful in their own way,
provide more blessings
to those who experience them.

You also can provide a blessing to others...
no matter how little it may seem...
a smile, an encouraging word,
a small gift... your time.

And don't forget to accept and appreciate
the kindness shown to you.

"Never get tired of doing little things for others,
sometimes those little things
occupy the biggest part of their hearts."
