"For who has despised the day of small things?" Zechariah 4:10
Smallness tends to get a bad rap. We want bigger. Bigger is better. So says the common wisdom. So we are conditioned to think.
But I'm not so sure about that. When I think about the things that make my life happy....a visit with a neighbor, a phone call from a kid, a card in the mail, sheets smelling of fresh air and sunshine, a baby laughing, hot water and soap and towels for a shower any time I want, a rainstorm, fresh peas from the garden, a good book, a smile and a hug, a pot of orange tea, an opportunity to help, a free cup of *senior* coffee from McDonald's, the sound of the wind chimes in the breeze, a Bible study with my friends, a funny joke, a text from the 1LT...there aren't that many big things on the list.
The small things, it would seem, are the big things.
