"A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation. God sets the solitary in families..."Psalm 68:5-6a

what difference does it make?

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. 
And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do."
~Edward Everett Hale~

It seems futile, sometimes...the meager bit we can do doesn't seem like enough to really help. But, if we all combine our crumbs, our tiny offerings, we can make a difference for one...
And if we keep on doing it, if we keep on giving a little here & a little there, we can make a difference for another, & another, & another.

I am only one. But all of us together...we are a force. We are an army. We are friends of the friendless & voices for the voiceless. We ought not refuse to do what we can do...& we can all do something! Share the needs, give some pennies, pray for the children & for families to find them & bring them home. 


  1. Love this! It's similar to what I shared last month. We may not be the ones bringing these kids home, but we can surely help rally the troops. :)

    1. Absolutely, Bethany! We all have a part to play...
