Your smallest actions add up to something big!

Have you ever noticed how when someone does an act of kindness for somebody else, it has a snowball effect? Jesus said that what you do for the least of them, you are doing for HIM. A little over a year ago, I was given a whole bunch of new clothes from a lady who we think of as the "QVC" queen. Most still had the tags on them. She sees something she likes and buys it....in various sizes and colors. One coat in particular, to my way of thinking, was just beautiful. It was a leather coat, eggplant in color. Just beautiful. Also, it was a 2X....which since losing weight just swallowed me now. Last winter, it never got cold enough to wear it. Soooo, I never wore it. Last night at Church, we had a Pink Elephant party to celebrate the New Year. Anybody who ever says you can't have fun in Church, is sadly mistaken. We laughed so hard and lovingly teased each other over our "gifts" that the evening was over before we knew it. One lady in particular, who has (with her Husband and grown children) been coming for a little over a month was there and the Holy Spirit kept telling me to give her the coat. I went home and got the coat and brought it back and gave it to her. It made me feel so good to see the expression on her face! I thank GOD that I listened to the HOLY SPIRIT and obeyed. We have to be a blessing to get blessed in return. Such a simple concept...but so few actually do it.
