I Come In The Little Things...


I come in the little things,
Saith the Lord:
Yea, on the glancing wing
Of eager birds,
the softly pattering feet
Of furred and gentle beasts.
I come in the little things,
Saith the Lord:
Not borne on the morning's wings
Of majesty,
but I have set My feet
Amidst the delicate and bladed wheat.
I come in the little things,
Saith the Lord. Amen.

-Evelyn Underhill

This beautiful little poem is compliments of Bethany Tudor's (daughter of Tasha) book, Drawn From New England. It has always brought tears to my eyes. It is beautiful and real. The little things. Don't forget them, for they are what this beautiful world is made up of. And, all too often, we overlook the little things until it is too late, then they are gone from our world.

Make room, and time, for the little things.

Hi there!

Thank you SO much for the award! I'm sorry I didn't answer sooner; I'm a little behind on my emails. I did want you to know that I'm putting the award in my "things I love" pouch, and we'll work on passing it along!

I hope you're having wonderful weather there, and thanks again for the sweet award.

Love,

Marqueta

p.s. That poem makes me teary every time I read it, too. I just watched "Take Joy" today, and was inspired to make some magic in my life.

You are more than welcome, Marqueta. Your blog is so beautiful. It helps me to reconnect with the feminine side that gets lost in this crazy world. Take joy! Making magic...perfect. Have a joyful evening. ~Amy
