'It's in the small things that we discover the joys of life....'

...'my two boys running around the house naked after bath time...'
...'daddy coming home early unexpectedly and we end up playing in the park till after sunset, catching balls and flying aeroplanes...'
...'watching them long after they've gone to sleep, thanking God for these two miracles in our life...'
...'seeing someone special after a long time and catching up is the most natural thing, like you haven't even been apart...'
...'holding little hands in yours and knowing the love you feel for them is bigger than anything else in this world...'

It's when you experience God's grace unexpectedly and you know there is so much more to life than everything we are chasing after...

It's knowing that no matter where life take you, family will always be home and it's the small things they do that become the big things...

And this my boys is what I want you to remember, there will be many big events in your life and those may be anything from going to school the first time to your wedding day, the really wonderful ones.... and then there might be the ones where you bury a loved one way too soon and life might be falling apart for a while.....

But throughout your life, in those in-between moments there will be many small moments which will be the ones that will carry you through.... And mostly those will be the ones where God's grace will bigger and more than you'd ever imagined...

Because one day you will look back and it will be the small moments that make up the tapestry of your life and if you look carefully, they will be the ones that add up to make your life more beautiful than you could ever imagine.. And that my boys is what make life worth living for.....

TO EVERYTHING there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3:1 AMP)
