the little things

"We prevent God from giving us the great spiritual gifts He has in store for us,
because we do not give thanks for daily gifts...

We pray for the big things
and forget to give thanks for the ordinary,
small (and yet really not small) gifts.

How can God entrust great things to one
who will not thankfully receive from Him the little things?"
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Oh God, give us hearts brimming with thankfulness.
