With all that’s going on in the world – wars, slavery, poor economy – we are often left with a feeling of hopelessness for the sake of that world and our lives. Sometimes, we need to make the best of the simplest things in life. The smile of a child met in the grocery store. A BBC Jane Austen movie. The making of cookies for a friend.
There are, indeed, things that are more significant in our lives than the things that seem so grand. These small things lift the heart in praise to God to whom we should be grateful.
