A Whole New World

Don't start singing it. Don't do it.

Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me, but behold, by small and simple things are great things brought to pass, and small means, in many instances, doth confound the wise.
~Alma


So here we are a month out from when Tiffany came home from the hospital. That alone changed our life. Then we found out the results and that changed how we viewed the world. Then came Christmas, which we thought it might be spent in a hospital room. This was a large impact that made a difference in how we view life. Generally speaking, we all look at these large events in our lives and we make changes accordingly (unless some of you are like me and it takes several large events to knock me into changing my life).

But then came a new table and clean dishes. And who would think that those comparatively unequal, inanimate objects would really have an impact on me - Tiffany laughs at my thought, but it has made a large impact to our home - ask us some time - we will tell you all the changes we made to the layout of the home because of the table - for the better we believe. We have played more family games because of the comfortableness of the table (and because we got some new ones for Christmas). The clean dishes was a blessing on many fronts. And isn't that what these things are - little blessings? Some of these little blessings really do change our view of the world.

So what's next? What little thing will change your life? Do you even know it changed? Did you see the blessings of even some of the smallest things that have come into your life?

Whether large or small, there is something around the corner that will change your outlook of the world you live in.

I hope you don't take it for granted, or else, you might miss some of the greatest blessings around.

Cheers,

Nathan

  1. Reminds me of Brother Eyrings Conf. talk a while back about taking time at the end of each day to acknowledge the blessings, or the Lord's hand in your life that day. It's amazing what you notice when you think about it. Can't wait to try the dishwashing stuff....hope it works that well for us!
