LITTLE THINGS


Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let's not be afraid to receive each day's surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy it will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.

Henri Nouwen

We can get preoccupied by the hustle and bustle of the day, which can be overwhelming sometimes. Life can be busy, the good news for me is having something that can make my life easier and a few things do.

Using a calendar for example to help keep up to date with appointments, birthdays, meetings, visits, travel plans, works wonders for my personal organization.

Some people travel with a favorite pillow or products to make their trip comfortable away from home. I am thankful for a good mobile phone. I wonder how we survived without phones decades ago. We have sufficient gadgets on are phones to make life a little easier and comfortable. We have access to the news, navigator, clock, weather forecast, camera, notes, eBooks and choices of apps, all in one mobile phone. One other precious object I have in my hand bag is my set of keys; forgetting or misplacing your keys can have grave consequences placing you in frustrating positions from breaking your door, changing locks to calling the AA for car assistance.

Seat back sometimes to not just appreciate little things but find time to use them.

Pastor, I agree with you. Every morning when I wake up, I expect something good to happen to me. This pleasant expectation makes me feel very happy, so I go about rejoicing and smiling. This attracts beautiful things my way. Pastor there is no day I don't have a testimony no matter how seemingly small it may be. Most times, I think of people I love so much, this cheers me up exceedingly. God bless you my Queen for sharing this. I love you dearly

Thank for this reminder. The message is so apt, expectation bears appreciation and in turn enjoyment of people, place or things. Often time we are either to busy or the items becomes to 'common' that we take it for granted...which often result in change of attention and the value we place on tbe item on question....in the end we would either misplace or lose it completely. Often only then do we re-evaluate, pay attention and begin to enjoy again. Because we are mere mortals we just need to regularly appraise and pay attention when the Holy Spirit nudges us in ways which only him peculiarly can. Thank you.

Celebrating our shared humanity makes our lives richer and more rounded. It's so amazing how technology can make our lives easier and how much it helps us to be actively involved in global community. I recently had the opportunity of participating in a friend's baby shower abroad. Choosing the baby's gift from the registery and having it shipped to her directly with a personalised message from my phone was so easy and it gave me so much joy. Thank you once again for sharing.

Greetings Pastor. Thank you for the post. Please Pastor consider forgiving Pastor in your heart for what he did to you. You did a great job in the UK by God's Spirit. You have a calling to fulfil. Don't turn your back on Jesus's calling please. He will take care of all the issues. Just do what Jesus is telling you.

I remember the day I forgot my phone on my way to work. I felt totally empty. My bible is on my phone. I couldn't check the weather, read travel and news updates, receive or make important calls and check my diary. That day I appreciated the importance of the mobile phone. It is one of the most important tools in modern times.
