SPIRITUAL POEMS: “Thank God for little things” (from an older post) by Helen Steiner Rice

“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.
