A Celebration of Small Things
by Haley Goff @krgoff79 @mandkgoff
Zechariah 4:10a NIV “Who dares despise the day of small things. . .”
All it takes is one reading of the book of Exodus to know that God loves details. In Matthew He tells us that the very hairs of our head are numbered. I think feathers are numbered too! Sometimes ,in the midst of creation’s majesty, we miss the small things. We see the huge mountains and bold sky yet we don’t look for the small things that are just as magnificent in their own way. Here we have a lost feather trapped in an old stump. You wonder what story that feather and stump could tell. What glorious vistas the feather soared over, what storms and fires the tree fought against. I love the small things, the details of creation. It’s like looking into God’s soul. Haley crafted this image so beautifully. It’s simple yet imaginative, small but strong; just like our Haley, the youngest of our tribe. Haley may be tiny but her spirit is mighty! Remember, don’t ever despise (or underestimate) the small things!
NOTE: In June 8 teenagers and 4 adults, joined us in GTNP for a weeklong Spiritual Formation Retreat. Our focus was to use the solitude and beauty of God’s creation to let His presence come serve and develop our spiritual selves, using the tool of photography for slowing and seeing. These 12 images illustrate both the glory of the Lord’s creation as well as the beauty of the souls that created them.
