Simple things...

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks;
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
~I Thessalonians 5:16-18

~~~~~

The little things are infinitely the most important.
~Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

~~~~~

That the miniature rose given to me last Mother's Day survived the winter...

 

For barefoot children climbing trees on a warm spring day...

 

Watching happy hens scratch and peck...

 

And, yes, even the deer who regularly stop by for a snack of spring grass...



Rejoicing and giving thanks for the simple things of life and enjoying the perspective each provides! For what are you thankful today? Join me for Gratituesday at Heavenly Homemakers :)

    1. Thanks for dropping in, Cindy -- welcome! The deer are a gift to see for sure, even though they're regulars around here. I've always wanted to live out here where we live and try hard to keep the scenery, including the pesky deer, from becoming mundane. Blessings to you! ~Lisa

  7. How appropriate for my day! It's been a stressful one, and whenever that happens it's always great to step back and look at the blessings you have in your life. Stopped by from Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways. :)
