The little things

I help an older friend of mine to extract honey from time to time. He’s getting older and is not able to lift and move around as fast as he used to. Throughout the workday, he has these moments where he forgets little things. There is a lever on the side of the uncapping machine that if switched one way it loosens its grip on the honey frame as to unjam it if it gets stuck. If it’s left this way it will not uncap the wax from the honey, making me scrape it all and ends up being a lot of work. At first, when this started happening I was getting upset at all the extra time and work this produced. After a while, it became a joke that we would laugh over and that’s when I noticed something. Even though these mistakes would cost us time and some money, we were having a great time. It’s important throughout our life to make time for the little things and to focus on the good that can come out of a troublesome incident. God wants us to focus on the good and to trust Him in every situation. Heavenly Father thank you for this beautiful morning please forgive us for any of our sins and trespasses Lord known and unknown. Thank you for all the little things in life that can brighten our day if we let it. Help us to have your sight to see light in the darkness. In Jesus’ precious name amen.
