It's the little things

I found this very cute little piece of artwork at Canton.  The lady that painted it had some really nice large paintings and I really would have liked to have bought something bigger.  I just couldn't figure out were I was going to put it in my house. (I don't know why I let that stop me, it never has before!!)  Anyway this little block of wood caught my eye and at $5 was a sweet little deal. 
It is painted with fabric glued inside the heart/peace sign.  When I was paying for my purchase I noticed this was written on the back, Phillipians 4:6-7. Now I will shamefuly admit I did not know this verse by heart, so I wasn't sure but I figured it had something to do with peace (hence the sign on the front).  A few days later when I was unpacking all of my goodies I pulled this out and grabbed my bible.  Now I could make you go look it up yourself but I'm not,

Philippians 4:6-7 (New International Version)

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I do not make my problems public but God knows my heart and He knew how to get my attention with a sweet little sign...... even in a field of junk.  
Peace be with you  my friends!
