Good Morning or good evening!
A Brand new week is before us.
How much wind does it take to stir the smallest wave?
How much peace can be seen in a simple image if the time is taken to look?
I read a story last week which touched my heart. In an African hospital a little girl lay very ill on a hospital bedroll. Her brother told one of the aid workers ‘My little sister has never had a pillow’.
That night the little girl was given a gift of her very own pillow – feminine and soft. The smile of gratitude, faith and love she shone on everyone around brought joy to the whole ward and all the staff.
The little girl died that night. She had slept on her vey own pillow for only one night. Yet, her story of courage, hope and thankfulness left behind a lasting memory. Even in death her head was pillowed and the hint of a smile was still on her face.
How much would it take it this day for each of us to make a difference in someone’s life.
It may be a smile to a frail elderly person. It may be acknowledging a disabled person – Simply travelling today and this week with a focus outside of ‘what is happening to me’.
HOW MUCH DOES IT TAKE!
Shine a Hope Light!
