“Our lives are made in these small hours
These little wonders, these twists & turns of fate,
Time falls away, but these small hours,
These little wonders still remain.”
This song has resonated with me through my first pregnancy, through raising my little ones, through the bright & shining blessings that come even through hard moments. This song helps me marvel at the sweet, sweet moments God gives to me each day if I am only willing to look. As I sang this song over and over again to my firstborn daughter Anna, I’d mull over its words: “Time falls away, but these small hours, these little wonders, still remain.” What moments are making impressions on my heart? What do I want to last in my mind’s vault? What are the little moments I treasure, savor, and want to hang onto?
I have found that minibooks are perfect for capturing these “small hours” which make our lives so meaningful! Minibooks are perfect for focusing on the details of those significant little moments. They have helped me appreciate the little moments in life — a word, a snapshot, a momento — all kept in a fun little paper book.
This is why I chose the name for my Etsy shop & this blog!
