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
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!!!
