What I’m seeing today is the joy of small things

Last week someone asked me to place some flowers on the altar of our locked church – they were in memory of someone who died suddenly.

I wonder what has made you smile today? A plant flowering, the new leaves on a tree, a child’s laughter, a silly meme? Today I have been going through some of the photos I have taken over the last two weeks, and noticing small things that have given me pleasure.

The grass cross on my gate from Palm Sunday is joined by this rock – it will  join the other rocks all around the village, hidden for the children to find.

Jesus talks about the power of small things. Faith as small as a mustard sees can move mountains. Anyone who is faithful in very little ways can also be trusted to be faithful in important ones. In these days, we can ‘do’ very little, but small actions speak volumes about love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Thank goodness that against such things there is no law!

The rainbow bunting on my gate has been made by my neighbour who knows I don’t have the time or talent to make some myself.
