Cherishing Thankfulness

A blogging friend usually writes a "Thankful Thursday" post. I thought today, then, was a good day to share how Amy C*rmichael talks about cherishing thankfulness. It causes me to stop and ponder. I try to be thankful, but do I really cherish the concept, and make it so much a part of my life, that it is dear to me?

Amy frequently gives a good illustration of small things to be thankful for. I do cherish the little things in life. "I have come more and more to watch for those minute touches of the love and forethought of our Father which are shown in the smallest things of life, such as the coming of a flower, a message, a picture, a letter, a book; the touch of a loving hand, the look in loving eyes, the tones in loving voices--things too small to tell, but making such a difference in our day."

Don't they?


  1. Yes all those things do make such a difference! Isn't it a glorius day today?

  2. Beautiful post, great thoughts. I was thinking something similar yesterday evening during my run. A big breeze blew through the trees and beautiful yellow leaves were fluttering all around me and I thought... this is all from God.

  3. Indeed those words have helped me to see God's glory. I read today that Gerald Manley Hopkins said that we have to see God's glory in that rose that you have posted. Sometimes we aren't even paying attention in our busyness , but I'm glad you captured the beauty.

  4. Very beautiful...


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
