Little Blessings....(Compiled)

" The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever."
(Psalm 121:8 NLT)

" I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances."

 (Philippians 4:11)

" Trust the Lord your God with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."
 (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)
" Prayer should be the key of the day and the lock of the night."
" Be joyful because you have hope. Be patient when trouble comes, and pray at all times."
(Romans 12:12)

" God's love for us is not a love that always exempts us from trials, but rather, a love that always sees us through trials."

" God does not ask your ability or your inability.
He asks only your availability "
 (Mary Kay Ash)

Little deeds of kindness,
Loving thoughts to share,
Warm words to encourage,
The knowing someone's there,
Gentle smiles to cheer us
When weary grows the way,
A morning sweet with dewdrops
To start a sunny day,
The love that's always with us
Whenever we must roam,
A soft glow in the window
When we're in sight of home,
The things that really matter
Are such a special part
Of all the little blessings
Most precious to the heart.

"Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters"

"The things that matter the most in this world,
Can never be held in our hand."
-Gloria Gaither-

"It is after all, mostly little, common things that make up our lives."
-Elisabeth Elliot-
"Every day shared with the ones we love is a gift
to be thankful for."


I find what I look for in people. If I look for God, I find God. If I look for bad qualities, I find them. I, in a sense, select what I expect, and I receive it.
A life without challenges would be like going to school without lessons to learn. Challenges come not to depress or get me down, but to master and to grow and to unfold thereby.
In the Father's wise and loving plan for me, no burden can fall upon me, no emergency can arise, no grief can overtake me, before I am given the grace and strength to meet them.
A rich, full life is not determined by outer circumstances and relationships. These can be contributory to it, but cannot be the source. I am happy or unhappy because of what I think and feel.
I can never lose anything that belongs to me, nor can I posses what is not really mine.
To never run from a problem: either it will chase me or I will run into another just like it, although it may have a different face or name.
To have no concern for tomorrow. Today is the yesterday over which I had concern.
To never bang on a closed door: Wait for it to open and then go through it.
A person who has come into my life has come either to teach me something, or to learn something from me.
