Little Things....Big Impact

You know, already in this process, there have been comments made/things said that reveal the negative in the hearts of some people. Racism. Skepticism. Basic misunderstanding. Little things....big impact.

But, mostly, what has been revealed to us is the scope of love that dwells in each of us. This happens sometimes in ways unexpected. Little things.....big impact.

Without going into a lot of detail, several years ago, the church we were married in and spent many years serving in, underwent what I can only classify as an ugly split. And, since that time, meetings between those of us who left and those that stayed have been, well, weird. And, let's face it, no one likes weird? Little things....big impact.

Several weeks ago, an individual whose family we love but who we have had little contact with since the split, contacted me and offered to host a Thirty-One party as a fundraiser for our adoption. Little things.....big impact.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not implying that her offer is a "little" thing; it's definitely not. I'm just saying that a little goes a long way when it comes to showing someone God's love.

Melody, again, your offer to support our adoption made a HUGE impact on our hearts.

And, now, for a shameless plug.....if you'd like to order something great from Thirty-One, hop on over to Melody's page and place an order. She is donating her commission to our adoption fund (melt my heart). Act fast because we will be closing the party on Sunday (12/11) in order for all items to be received in time for Christmas.

And, lastly, this season (and always) don't forget to do a little thing for someone you love. I promise you, it will make a big impact.
