Cherish the little things that the Lord brings your way
A smile from a little child who is busily at play
A handshake or a gentle hug from somebody that cares
A word of encouragement can help you climb the stairs
When the burdens of a heavy load may be weighing your life down
Take time to sing a little song or just act like a clown
We take life much too seriously and don’t take time to play
Like a joy filled group of children on a breezy summer day
Sit in a swing and gently glide and whistle a little tune
Make music in your heart to God as you gaze upon the moon
Pick a flower, kick a can, or make a castle in the sand
Splash in a puddle, play in a band, or act like a sailor on dry land
Be thankful for what each day brings
Rise above troubles on angel’s wings
Why live like paupers when we belong to the King?
Accept all the blessings His Kingship brings!
Don’t forget to be thankful for little daily gifts
Each and every one of them can give your heart a lift
If we cherish the little things it makes for a better day
And along with all this cherishing please take time to pray
Lift your heartfelt prayers to God, and to Him your burdens bring
Cherish life and all God gives even when they’re little things!
