In Everything Give Thanks

It’s the beauty of a single moment, a noticed creation.


The falling of autumn leaves.

The wonderful, humid scent of coffee.

A stranger who smiles while idling at the intersection.

 Folded laundry and washed dishes.

A letter.

A compliment from your daddy.

Scripture enclosed within your brain.

Laughing . . . so hard that sound ceases to escape.


These things are just things: there is no eternal value in folded laundry or in the notice of fiery-orange leaves, no holiness in smelling coffee.

But there is a beauty and a joy.


“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31

“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” I Thessalonians 5:18
