Thought/Quote of the week…Look around at the little things.


Excerpt from ‘Cold Tangerines’ by Shauna Niequist http://www.shaunaniequist.com/

“Each one of our lives is shot through, threaded in and out with God’s provision, His grace, His protection, but on the average day, we notice it about as much as we really notice gravity or the hole in the ozone… Once you start seeing the faithfulness and the hope, you see it everywhere, like pennies.  And little by little, here and there, you realize that all of life is littered with bright copper coins, that all of life is woven with bits and stories of God’s goodness… What gives me hope is the belief that God will be faithful, because He has been faithful before, to me and the people around me.  I need the reminders.  I need to be told that He was faithful then, and His promises have been kept.  All I need to do is see.”
