Simple Things

The biggest things can start in the simplest of ways. A baby starts to babble and experiment with sounds long before they can speak single word. Children blow bubbles in the water and work on putting their face under before they start learning to swim. A 50 year marriage starts with a simple conversation. They start small, and move forward in the smallest and sometimes most surprising of ways. There is the occasional leap, but not often. Why would we expect our faith and relationship with God to be different? It can start with a conversation. It can start with a moment of peace and clarity. It can start with a miracle. But then it moves forward in the smallest and sometimes most surprising of ways. The thing to remember is that all of these things develop and grow because we focus on them. Babies work and work at talking, children (and adults) work at swimming, couples work on their marriage. We work on our relationship with God and our faith. All the time. Little by little. As you look back, you might be surprised at how it has grown.
