It's the Little Things

A few weeks ago, I bought
this metal cabinet at a garage sale for $2.00.
I'm always happy to find furniture with storage potential!  
It was in pretty rough condition.
This picture shows it sanded down
and ready for primer and paint.
(All my husband's work, by the way.
You can see more of his projects here.
I say that he works wonders!)
 This is it - after primer & two coats of paint.
I'm excited about the end result.
But I'm most excited about the latch below!
Isn't it wonderful?

Often it's the little and most unexpected thing 
that catches my eye...It's that way with God, too.

But God made selection of the foolish things of this world so that he might put the wise to shame; and the feeble things that he might put to shame the strong. (I Corinthians 1:27, Bible in Basic English)

He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much, and he who is dishonest and unjust in a very little [thing] is dishonest and unjust also in much. (Luke 16:10, Amplified Bible)

But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others.  They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.” (Mark 12:42-44)


  1. Morning Rebecca,
    Thanks for stopping in yesterday, and yes, it is
    nice to know that you are not the only one that goes thru hard things like conflict. Everyone does at times, but it is never fun, but guess there would be something very wrong with us if we thought it was fun!! lol

    Your lil cabinet is nice, hubby did a great job in sprucing her up. Quite a nice latch I must
    say. and just like you say, much of life is about the lil things. Makes me think of that verse about the lil foxes spoiling the vines,
    it truly can be the lil things that make life great or that take us down as christians.
    Very nice post.
    Love and Blessings hon,

  2. Oh I love this insight...I am going to be looking for the "little" things today...listening for God's heart and being faithful in what He puts before me.

    Oh love your find! Yea! for your husband's talents.

  3. It really is wonderful! What a great job!
    What are you going to put in it?

  4. Hi Rebecca!
    Yes, it IS the little things, those little things God shows us along the way.
    I love the cabinet and the tlc it received from you and your husband made it look new again!
    Have a Happy Weekend*
