The Small Things

A lot of us go through life without realizing how really blessed we are. Most of us do not appreciate that fact that we have food on our tables or that we are employed and  there happen to be  a few of us that do not have to work at all. Then there are some of us that happen to be blessed with  good man or good woman  don't appreciate it and take it for granted. Its a wonder we go through life without appreciating the small things, because its those things that make our life or others , a little bit better each and everyday we live.
I have often hear both  men and women question , if their mates  truly love them or not. Then I see the  small things that their husband or wives  do for their spouses and it makes me wonder why they even  ask this question .If you happen to be reading this and  question your spouses  love for you here are just a few examples or questions  that may  show that they really care. (1)Does your mate; e-mail, text or even call you once a day just to let you know that they are thinking about you or love you?(2) Does your mate help you around the house, washing dishes , cooking, mowing the yard, with the children, iron your clothes,cleaning the house or even washing your car?(3) When you are sick does your mate take good care of you and when they are not around they call , then check up on you?(4) Do you have a hard working man or woman that either helps pays the bills or all the bills?(5) Does your mate do romantic things like send you flowers, cook romantic meals,write romantic notes or letters, wine and dine you? Now this is a question everyone should think about hard. Because its one people never seem to think about.(6) Has your life improved any and have you learned anything positive from your mate? Well in most cases people will say yes to at least four of these questions and if that's the case then without a fact your spouse does love you and care for you.
We as humans, United States citizens and as Christians are so spoiled that we forget about the small things and think that this is the way life if suppose to be. We miss-treat our spouses, mates, friends and relatives, then feel that they are not doing enough for us. But we forget about the small things they do everyday, without us asking, doing it from their heart, just because they were thinking about us and just because they care. So the next time you think someone may not care enough or love enough, just look at the small things, then you may realize that you are not appreciating the small thing that people do to make your life better everyday.
Have a blessed day!
1 Corinthians 7:33-35 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of the world- how can he please his wife and his interests are divided. An un-married woman or virgin is concerned about the Lords affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of the world- how can she please her husband. I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.
