The Little Things

Little Things
On Monday, I was reminded how we can find the blessings in the little things in life. 

We went to an information session at a college, On our way there, we stopped at Starbucks to get our free coffee. Unfortunately, this Starbucks did not receive the machine to give you free coffee. 

We continued on to the college. We arrived a little early, so we were able to enjoy a nice walk around a quaint little town. Unplanned nut nice exercise. 

Before the session started, Scott and I were given coupons for free coffee! God knew we didn't really need two cups that late at night!

The information session was a blessing in and of itself. It gave both of us some peace about pursuing future education. We would love your prayers as we decide whether to pursue this option or not. 

Afterwards, the director who was doing the session had a drawing. Scott won one of the prizes. He got a travel coffee mug that was stainless steel lined. We had just been talking that morning about wanting to get some of those, but that they were too expensive. 

I am amazed when we stop back and look for the blessings in a day, we can find lots. Once I start focusing on the positive, other positive things come to mind.

What is one little blessing from your day?


  1. I hope you don't mind but I chose you as one of the bloggers to tag/nominate in this award post: Thanks for your posts!

  2. God loves to supply us with "little things," because when we are thankful and excited about His working = = it excited God too and he delights to give us more.! Free coffee - can be used later -- and the mug, such a nice gift that you were even thinking about. Thank you for sharing your story at "Tell me a True Story."

    1. I am excited when I see God working. Sometimes, I have to step back and remember to look for Him working!
