{small things with great *LOVE*}

this season brings attention to the fact that we are blessed.
we have plenty.
sunday night we studied genesis 12.
abram was blessed.
why?
so he could bless others.

"i will make you into a great nation and i will bless you. i will make your name great and you will be a blessing." genesis 12:2

we are seeking ways to bless and encourage and meet the needs of others. i found this little clip of shane claiborne, author of irresistible revolution. he speaks very powerful words....

"we can do no great things, only small things with great love"
-mother teresa

**check out this video of shane reading a few lines from his book**

"today, small things with great love, or don't open the door"
-shane claiborne

grace and peace friends,

  1. I loved this post, Melissa. Sometimes we can get so overwhelmed with "saving the world" that we forget that it starts with making our own small corner beautiful - doing small things with great love. I'll be carrying this with me today x
