Little Bits of Love


Last weekend when my grandkids came for a visit, I had several activities for them to do. I bought Play-Doh. Oh my, what fun they had with that! Joy’s was nice a neat and she created some fun things. Percy and Leslieanna on the other hand made mounds of colors…Leslieanna ended up with all of her Play-Doh, plus a large amount of Percy’s.


An activity that this trio enjoys is batting balloons around the house. I’ve created “paddles” from paper plates and tongue depressors. Then blow up some balloons and let them have fun. The giggles that follow are priceless.

Once baked, we all enjoyed these cookies, but Percy’s comment was extra special. He said that the pink chips were little bits of love. Awwww. What a great kid!


Those little bits of love reminded me of how God shows up in my life each day. It might be a beautiful sunrise or snow covered mountains or peace in a difficult situation or the gentle touch from a friend. There are countless ways I hear God saying, “I love you.”


Now I must admit there are days that I am so focused or too busy or a little weary to notice all the little bits of love that God spatters throughout my day.


So today, I will be cognizant of the little bits of love God is blessing me with. Maybe you need to do the same. Let’s remember to look for…


“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8 – NIV) When we are focused on these things, we will see the little bits of love that God is showering upon us.


Do you feel the love?


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
