Next morning, he hurried downstairs, and sure enough, whiteness everywhere! Dashing through the farmhouse door in his bare (suddenly very cold African) feet, he looked around in disbelief at the tiny swirling flakes. “Oh,” he said, disappointment strong in his voice, “I thought something big was going to happen.”
This story always makes me smile, because something big did happen! He reveled in the excitement of a major central Pennsylvania snowstorm...something really big, made up of a million little things.
I sometimes forget to notice the little things...
and in the process I can miss the big things that God is doing in my world, in me.
On a recent late day camera walk, I discovered a lot little beauties (aka known as weeds) dotting the roadside.
This wildflower, with the scientific name of Linaria vulgaris, is more commonly called toadflax.
It is also known as butter and eggs and may apparently be served with a side of inchworm and stinkbug, which I didn't even see when I snapped this photo.
