Take notice of the ‘little things’,
You carry forth in life.
For really, they are not so small,
Their impact makes one wise.
The time you scrub a cooking pot,
To wash and make it clean.
Preparing it for future use,
To hold nice food to eat.
The spontaneous walk you take,
To breathe in nature’s air.
You share a smile with a passer-by,
Expressing love and care.
The humble life you choose to live,
Letting life take its course.
Confident of God’s gracious plans,
In this life that is short.
Including those who do not fit,
The current status quo.
Like Jesus who was welcoming,
To tax collectors so.
Forgiving those who’ve done you wrong,
Forgiving yourself too.
Wishing them all the best in life,
Wishing the same for you.
Indeed, notice the ‘little things’,
You choose to do in life.
For these things are exhalted grand,
And really make you thrive.
