In The Little Things

In our everyday things, everyday lives
He's there.
I spent an afternoon this week with my sister and my mom hitting some thrift shops around town. I didn't see Jesus in that pendant until days later. Made me wonder how many days go by when I haven't seen Him in the little things all around me. Let's go on a scavenger hunt this week. Let's look at our treasures, our favorite things, our homes, our healed and broken relationships, our conversations...
(Mr. Blessing thought I sounded a bit like a fanatic when he read my post so I'm updating it to assure you that the pendant really was created with a Jesus face in it. I don't normally see faces carved in the mash potatoes or get secret codes from my newspaper, etc.)


  1. So beautiful Polly. This is one of my favorite scriptures. I just last night saw the article on you in Romantic Homes. Wonderful and insightful, and gorgeous photos.

  2. just had that conversation with one of my favorite people in the world...she is one of my Christian mentors who is always there to lift me up....thanks for another fabulous moment to remember....jules

  3. p.s. are you completely out of calenders? They look wonderful, and I would love to purchase one, if any more are available.

  4. Wonderful sentiments, I always think of Mary & Joseph when Jesus was 12 years old...and they went a day's journey without Him...
    That usually pulls me up short.
    Today would be my mom's birthday.
    So I am more aware of His Presence to comfort and console...
    Have a joyful Thanksgiving...

  5. Great post Polly, just loved it. I'll be looking more for him. Thanks for this and hope you have a great weekend, T

  7. Polly, what a gentle nudge to head me in the right direction. In the day to day, I know I'm sometimes forget to look...thank goodness, He doesn't.

  10. Hi Polly ~ that scripture is a great promise from Him - thankfully. He never forgets about us.

    I think it was last week that I signed up as your follower but I din't have time that day to leave a note to let you know. Come see me soon. And I'd be honored if you'd consider following me also.

  13. You tell Mr. B we knew exactly what you were talking about. Ha!!

  14. Great post, Polly...thank you so much for coming by The Open Window for a visit.

    I am hoping to share your blog with my readers in a post, yet this week. Will let you know when I do.


Something worth sharing...
