The Little Things

Everyday I’m not left in the dark,

or floating in space,

or without a bite

or something to wear

or air,

I believe all over again

what I’m prone to forget:

God is good.

His graces are daily.

He brings up the sun,

pulls tides,

grounds gravity,

gives food,

changes seasons,

allows me to work, sleep, and play

without a worry

that these gifts

will be gone tomorrow.

It’s the little things,

the givens,

that are biggest

when I remember them.

“…do not worry about tomorrow…,” Mt 6:34.
