More from 'O Come Let Us Adorn Them' Event

On Dec. 3rd, 2016, my sister and I had the privilege of attending 'O Come Let Us Adorn Them', an outreach to the homeless in Manchester, NH.

Several amazing friends participated in this, assisting me with the items, with such love shown, you would have thought these precious homeless folks were their own neighbors. I will be posting a couple more testimonies in the days to come. For each testimony that touched us personally, I decided I wanted to do a journal page for each to seal those sweet memories in my mind.
Feather Rae Reed is an amazing young lady with a heart after God. She joined our ministry awhile ago now, and she is full of love for others, and she creates straight from her heart with joy! It is evident in her work. Very much so, and I am so proud of her!

There was a woman who walked by our table that day. She was clearly homeless. The only thing she had with her was an old purse with holes in it. When my sister and I greeted her, we told her the types of things that were available at our table. She shook her head and said, "No. I don't believe in that kind of thing". She thanked us anyway. There were so many people that she kind of got 'stuck' in front of our table.
She spotted a tag that had purple glitter all over it, with a Scripture on the back. She looked both ways, scooped it up, and put it in that raggedy purse. My sister and I both caught this and were smiling ear to ear!

Feather prays while she works. CLEARLY, this woman would have left there without anything from our table, had she not seen the beautiful tag with the purple glitter. God took Feather's work, and I have no doubt in my mind that whatever Scripture was there was meant to be seen by this lady that day. God is SO specific to each of us, and this just proves it! God took something that Feather loves...purple glitter...and He used it to speak His words of life to the heart of someone Feather does not know, who is without a home, who happens to love purple glitter too!
I had so much fun with this page, and I used Feather's photo with permission here. Don't be afraid to step out when God calls you to do something! The 'small' things are NOT so small at all!!!

Blessings, Kim
