Small Things - 6.10.23

1. This cute God Bless This House printable.

2.  I enjoyed reading this series, Cultivating Hospitality, Part 1, Part 2.

3. The Daily Examen, I've been practicing a Weekly Examen for a little over a year now, but I like this idea as well.  I'm thinking about incorporating it into Slowly Savoring Summer.

4. Lisa is one my favorite Instagram accounts, and I love her blog, This Pilgrim Life, as well. She mentioned how she re-sets each season some time ago, but I was just reminded of it again this week.  I really love this idea and I'm thinking of tweaking it a little to suit my stage of life.

5. Growing up in Texas, Tex-Mex makes our menu plan at least once a week, sometimes more. I love a good old fashioned taco more than just about anything. But the minute I saw this recipe, I knew I had to add it to our summer rotation. My favorite brisket and chili recipes both include cocoa, so I'm really eager to give these tacos a try.

6. And his sweet little poem; 

 Little Things

We sometimes get impatient doing simple little things,
Like stitching, buttons, washing gloves - the trifling task life brings.
We think we're wasting precious time and grumble terribly,
Because we think we're fitted for a higher destiny.

But God did not despise the doing of the tiny things,
He spent a lot of time making flowers, making wings.
He made the mountains and the seas, the whirling worlds on high,
And yet He deigned to make the ant, the bee, the butterfly.
The spider and the snowflake and the smallest bird that sings,
So surely we with grace and care can do the little things.
