"Celebrate the Small Stuff"
The May program in our resource guide is titled "Celebrate the Small Stuff." The lesson is centered on the parable of the woman searching for her lost coin. Do you remember how she searched high and low, looking everywhere for just one coin? She had more coins, but she knew there was one more somewhere. When she did find the coin, there was reason to celebrate. She was so thankful to have found it!
It's easy to remember to celebrate important events in our lives. During this time of year, we celebrate Mother's Day, Father's Day and graduations. Of course, there are always weddings, anniversaries and birthdays, like in my family.
In celebrating these events, there might be a party, family gatherings, trips planned, gifts given. The list of ways to celebrate goes on and on. We need to be thankful and joyful as we celebrate these special days.
But what about the small stuff? Are we celebrating our small coins?
I have been thinking about the small stuff in my life to celebrate. Things like sitting on the couch with my dogs curled up beside me or sitting with my husband on the porch swing at the end of the day.
These have called for celebration in my life. In this, we need to remember to thank our Savior for the small stuff, the blessings he graciously gives to each one of us. Personally, I thank the Lord each time I make a left turn safely (traffic is crazy and I despise left hand turns!)
Remember to take time to share your coins with your friends, your church group and with your sisters in United Women in Faith. Select one of your many blessings to share and CELEBRATE!!
