In our hectic pace, have we branded small things unworthy of our time. Remember a musical note, a stitch, a brush stroke, the sequence one by one that creates loveliness, warmth, and inspiration. Remember the peace of grace-filled words through encouragement, apology, and endearment--"Amazing work, please forgive me, Sweetheart, I believe in you.” Remember the momentary actions, the pause to think before speaking, the eye-contact that says you’re listening, the hug that says, “I know you’re hurting.” Remember the little questions, when the silence is overwhelming, “How can I help you? How can I pray? Do you need a break?” Remember the little attentions that celebrate and show how you value one another. Remember the power in a seed, its will to rise and multiply for from the soil of little things God in love will grow our lives together.
