It is often in the little things, the details,
Often what we miss, we overlook,
It’s the small smile, the gentle touch, fleeting,
But all of a sudden,
The world bursts into light and song,
Into beauty and grace, into peace.
Then, I pray, let me bow down in thanks,
Thanks for the small blessings,
That stitch the joys of life together,
That sing in harmony,
That bring a smile, warmth to the heart.
I have so much, so many blessings
That I should fall down each day
In love with my life
And give thanks.
Rev. Dr. Jim Nelson
