Let’s Count ‘Em

February 11, 2016

Author Kurt Vonnegut’s wise advice: Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realize they were big things.

In one of the 2.5 churches I served (great story right there, “2.5 churches”) my first four years out of seminary, one of the pianists drilled this into my heart and head: “Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your blessings, see what God has done. Count your blessings…name them, one by one. Count your many blessings, see what God has done.”

She and Kurt Vonnegut would have a great time sitting down together for coffee.

But the question for you and me is, what little things from yesterday can we now see were really big things?

What of our many blessings have we already enjoyed today?

Let’s you and me make an effort to notice the little things that are really blessings…one by one.

Wanna join me in making a list?

  1. Let’s do! First to come to mind, was a solo walk in the woods at age 17-11 months + a few days-old that sent me on the first less traveled path from the map (set out FOR me) for the rest of my life.

  2. Forgot to specify the walk being in the woods, on free time at Aldersgate Institute at Little Grassy.
