"Do not let yourselves be discouraged or embittered by the smallness of the success you are likely to achieve in trying to make life better. You certainly would not be able, in a single generation, to create an earthly paradise. Who could expect that? But, if you make life ever so little better, you will have done splendidly, and your lives will have been worthwhile." ------ Arnold Toynbee
That's a good piece of wisdom there!

Just because you can only do things small or you think yourself too small to do great things, is not reason enough not to do anything at all. Because you can make a difference just being yourself right there where God has planted you. He meant for you to grow and flourish right there with who you are, flawed and imperfect, but with the unique talent which He wisely poured into your life for a definite reason.
So if you have a lovely singing voice... Sing! If you can paint... Paint! If you love to write... Write! Or be kind... gentle... be a good listener to other people's woes..... be a ready helping hand to those in need..... be a visible inspiration to others..... be blessed with wisdom to share..... be a compassionate heart that can understand another person's pain...... etc. All these and more are the gifts from above given you to make your life better and those it must serve.

Each one may be considered tiny probably insignificant compared to what the bigger world outside adores -- the grand and grander gesture of achievement ... but .... and but you have made a difference still. And this God can see and will be very pleased by it. Seeing that you have not put to waste your gifts and instead have nurtured and harnessed it to serve His plan for your life. He will use you even more for greater and bigger things. Because if you can be trusted with so little.... then surely you can be trusted with even more .... so much much.

Be your own kind of beautiful, by God's design.
Blessings to you and your loved ones!!
