If you've ever been around young children, you've probably received one or two of their hand-picked bouquets. Clasped in tiny, chubby fingers... they're a gift of love from a little one wishing for nothing in return ~ except what we give them anyway... a kiss, a hug, a "Thank you so much, these are just beautiful!"
How many times have you taken those carefully gathered flowers and moments later, for whatever reason, placed them on the ground to wither? Tiny, precious gifts quickly and simply forgotten.
Those precious little gifts are just like God's blessings.
Little blessings you're grateful for in one moment, and forget about in the next. Don't let all those precious little gifts go to waste. Take time to notice and appreciate the moments in life that make you say, "Thank You so much, that was just beautiful!" Let God know you appreciate even His smallest intervention in your day.
You'll find the small things add up...
Maybe the next time a child bounds over to you with a bouquet to hold... instead of setting it aside, take the time to place it in water. Remember what it stands for... because it's actually one of God's precious little gifts too.
