Little Big Blessings

Blessings come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and tonight I received a little big blessing that reminds me how vital it is that we realize how the little things we do can bring big blessings to others.

“I’m just calling to tell you I love you,” my pastor’s wife Sister Kim told me over the telephone just minutes ago. I can’t remember the rest of the words she spoke, but I can say the 60 seconds she took to offer me her little blessing was bigger than I could ever measure.

Why? First off, she is packing her bags to leave for Haiti yet again tomorrow to minister with her husband to a nation that continues to be in dire need. The last thing she needed to do right now is make yet another phone call – particularly simply to say “I love you” to a member of her church.

Why else was this big blessing so big? At 44 years old, I still struggle with the leftovers of rejection, abuse, and abandonment from the past. I would like to say I have strong faith and have perpetually positive thoughts about myself and others, but I do not. I have been struggling enormously lately yet again with how I perceive myself.

My pastor’s wife knows this, and she took the time out of her phenomenally busy schedule to edify and encourage me with life-giving words.

I wonder if we truly realize the significance we can have in someone else’s life with even the smallest of blessings. The blessing I received from Sister Kim took her all of 60 seconds to give, and yet the words and love she gave to me will stay with me forever. They will become part of who I am. Because just as much as I still bear wounds and scars from neglect in the past by those I have loved, I now am moving forward in my life – albeit slower than I would like – with a basket (and heart) full of blessings.

Not only will I go to sleep tonight grateful for this blessing the Lord bestowed on me through Sister Kim, but I will hopefully remember in the morning an incredibly important lesson.

Just one minute out of my day could help change another person’s life. Some of the biggest blessings come in small packages, and these very blessings can touch people’s lives for years to come.

Thank you God for Sister Kim Hebron. Thank you God for Pastor Freddie Hebron. Thank you God for reminding me how I, too, can be a blessing. Thank you God for the greatest blessing of all – your precious Son Jesus.

    Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks! asmr asmr
