Small but Mighty

"Each of us, no matter how small, has been placed on this earth to help spread the good news of God's love and His grace. He has gone to prepare a place for us. We can only imagine the joy that waits us as we join him and all the saints in heaven after our work on earth is done according to God's plan."

This morning I received an email from my aunt and uncle in North Platte which included the above blurb. On the way into the office today it struck me that Amelia, although small, and destined for only moments on this earth, has already impacted our lives in so many ways. How can it be that someone so small could raise so many voices in prayer, in song, in joy, and in sorrow to the heavens?

Already she has changed my view of the world; its beauty and fragility. She has drawn our family closer to each other and closer to Christ. She has caused me to surrender to Christ. (a daily struggle for us type A'ers) I start my day, end my day and live my day in constant conversation with God. I look at Noah and I am overwhelmed at the miracle of children and that God has entrusted him to Tim & my care. She has lead me to share the scripture that is strengthening me daily on Facebook, thus sharing the word with hundreds each morning. She has taught me to love in a way I had no idea I was physically capable of. I truly could and will go on for ages in awe of the blessings God has granted through her life, no matter how small.

He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20

Our babies are truly miraculous and such blessings. They are able to change the lives of so many. They really are small and mighty. I have said before that Carleigh has done so much in her brief life on earth than I could ever hope to accomplish.
