Light your world.
An old woman sits all alone in a rocking chair at home. Her husband is dead
and gone. And the Telephone never Rings. Nobody laughs and no one sings.
It's quiet and lonely there in her house.
A knocking at the door Breaks the silence and she hobbles to the door.
Opening it to meet The little boy from down the street.
He stands there in his Sunday Clothes. Flowers in his hand Like a little
Gentleman. He says, "I picked these just For you. I hope you like the color
Blue. Can I stay a while. I'd like to see you smile."
The Old woman's Eyes light up with an old glow as the love and caring of God
through the Boy let her know she isn't worthless. God has called each of us
to be lights in a dark world and to let the love of God show through us in
the little things we do.
It just takes a little time to show some one how much you care it just takes
a little love to answer someone's biggest prayer. Light your world in the
little things you do and even if it is to a few. Your rewards will be more
than money could ever be worth. Because the love and acceptance of another
has no price on it. As it's worth is insurmountable.
