• the little things •

  • studying for an economics test when the guy with a deep voice from your math class (but with the personality of a puppy) begins telling you how he couldn’t sleep last night, so he watched Howl’s Moving Castle instead and you find out he is also reading The Lord of the Rings
  • complimenting someone on their outfit and them saying, “I needed that today; thank you”
  • asking someone whether or not you should get chocolate chip cookies or M&M’s and they take the time to seriously help you out
  • going to the drugstore because you need/want new mascara + eyeliner but meeting a person with a lovely personality and giving them eyeliner tips
  • seeing your friend who says, “how did your economics test go? I remembered and prayed for you.”
  • getting to the chapel a bit later than usual when a woman walks in, kneels down, and begins crying. You wait a few minutes before handing her a tissue and holding her hand. She continues to cry and squeezes your hand back. You sit beside her and hold her. She asks for prayers for her son, Steven (Stephen?). You give her your Pieta prayer book (which you didn’t think you had anymore) and dog-ear the prayers which offered you the most comfort in your time of need.
  • she thanks you for being there for her; you think, “no one should have to cry alone”
  • realizing your iPod was in your pocket so you plug it in on the way home and listen to Kim Jae Joong and G-Dragon before feeling happy enough to sing with Taeyang
  • getting home and realizing your computer is being used, so you draw instead
  • once you’re done drawing, you read Not God’s Type

the little things are often ordinary, everyday miracles

pay attention

  1. Hey, I meant to comment on this post right when it was published… I don’t know why it didn’t happen.

    This is really beautiful. I love love love when God blesses me with things that I was not expecting. Something that touched me the other day also happened in adoration. My sister and I have an hour every week, but we forgot the other day until our time was almost halfway over. We felt so bad, and while we were driving to the church, I prayed that the person who was visiting with Jesus needed the extra time somehow. When we got there and I apologized to the woman, she looked more amused than frustrated, and with a smile, she told me that it was no problem; she had fallen asleep during her hour, so the extra time was a blessing. My sister and I looked at each other, and knew that God had heard my prayer. The most beautiful thing about it was that the song that was playing on Christian radio while we were driving had been “Good Good Father” by Chris Tomlin – /”You’re a good, good Father… And I’m loved by You… Cause You know just what we need before we say a word.”/

    Our God is perfectly lovely ❤

    P.S. Howl’s Moving Castle is a wonderful book.

    • Hey, Maddie!

      Thanks so much for sharing this. It’s so comforting to know that things always work out. No matter what, something good will come of every situation. It always works out.

      Howl’s Moving Castle is an adorable book! I had a few problems with it, but, overall, it was very cute. ^_^
