Celebrating the Little Things


Hey you! It's a rainy, chilly, and beautiful day here in the south. I know I won't be saying this for long but I'm kinda loving it because it's the perfect excuse to rock an oversized sweater and sip hot coffee. There's something so heart warming about it. Anyone else love doing that? 

So, can I be honest a bit? My life is so crazy right now. I am in a season that I have never experienced before. My marriage is so sweet... I am serving in the church which brings me such joy... But I am busy. And I do not like being that busy person. I work everyday and I'm going through some personal health issues. With all of this said, I know that my awesome and loving God isn't letting all of this happen in vain. He is molding me to look more like Him. And with each chisel and painful blow, I can find hope that one day, it will all be worth it. He is worth it! 

Maybe you're in a hard season as well. It's easy to throw a pity party but God wants us to celebrate His goodness no matter what! Celebrating the little gifts in this life make the big things seem a little brighter...


















I'm linking up with Anne from Love the Here and Now for her "10 awesome things" link up! It's so fun to celebrate the little awesome things in my life!

  3. I always think of the not so good times as growing pains and try to remember that every day I'm growing to be more like Him and closer to Him. The little things are THE best and I always try to remember that, too!

  4. I can definitely relate to your busy season. I am currently in one myself, I feel like I never stop. But like you said the Lord uses everything for His glory, and will use in our busy season to teach us and prepare us!
