Things that are precious to me

I found this years ago somewhere, I wish I could remember where, but I printed it and kept it by my desk. On days when I feel overwhelmed, that there is too much to be done, too much to worry about, too much to anticipate, it brings me great comfort to remember what is important and it helps me to refocus.

Things that are precious to me, things that are simple and lovely and good… I am going to focus on those…

  • God’s sweet promises
  • A good morning kiss from my husband
  • The early morning snuggle time with my children
  • The rain on the roof
  • Freshly picked vegetables from the garden
  • Hearing my children pray
  • Seeing kindness from my kids to their siblings or others
  • The strong arms of my husband
  • Snowflakes
  • Beautiful skies painted by God’s own hand
  • Piano Music
  • Laughter
  • Open windows and a gentle breeze
  • Candlelight Church hymns sung acapella
  • Warm soup on a cold and dreary day
  • My husband reading the Bible to our family
  • Homemade gifts
  • Flowers
  • Smiles
  • Hearing, I love you Moma

These things and more are the real and true things, the things to be treasuring… not the material, not the temporal…We trust that through this valley God will be glorified… that He will be lifted up. That He holds us with His Almighty Hand and we can be at peace knowing He will never let us fall.
