yesterday morning i read the day's devotional and then went for my walk
{i decided to actively look for my "little treasures" along the way}

but for now, here's what i read before heading out...

as you go through this day, look for tiny treasures strategically placed along the way.

i lovingly go before you and plant little pleasures to brighten your day.

look carefully for them, and pluck them one by one.  

when you reach the end of the day, you will have gathered a lovely bouquet.

offer it up to me with a grateful heart.


receive my peace as you lie down to sleep, with thankful thoughts playing a lullaby in your mind.

a forgotten little notebook left on a stone wall

i wonder if God grinned as i turned the same corner i turn every day...

listening to the same song on my ipod...

knowing this little treasure would make me grin...BIG

it's a happy thanksgiving

Oh what a beautiful post! Good for you for walking before feasting. Better, yet what a way to start a day of Thanksgiving by giving Thanks to the One who gives it to us all.
