“Thank God for little things”
Thank God for little things
that often come our way.
The things we take for granted,
but don’t mention when we pray.
The unexpected courtesy,
the thoughtful , kindly deed,
a hand reached out to touch us,
in the time of sudden need-
Oh, make us more aware, dear God
of little daily graces
that come to us with “sweet surprise”
from never dreamed of places.
