Do you have someone in your life that has made a difference but haven't told them about it? I feel so good that I was able to thank Linda so that she will know she is truly appreciated. Kindly spoken words make such a difference. I encourage you to take a look around and find someone that has inspired you or has made a difference in your life and let them know. Do it today!
A good place to start is your church. What about the people that do the little things that are really big things: the baptismal committee, those that prepare the Lord's Supper observance, the ones that serve in the nursery during the worship service, the long-time secretaries that are so trustworthy, the dedicated ones that serve in the kitchen, the faithfull members that are always there, rain or shine. One time, we had a cricket problem in our church. My friend Kathy would arrive early each Sunday morning for "Cricket Patrol" so that all of the crickets that had ventured in since the custodian left on Friday would disappear before members and guests arrived on Sunday morning! All of these individual dependable servants that make the whole body of the church. For each of them, I am grateful and today I am especially grateful for Linda. She made me look closer and appreciate more deeply, every member of my church.
Today she played both the organ and the piano. I watched as her quiet, gentle spirit praised The Lord through Song. Tears streamed down my cheeks as we sang the words, "All that thrills my souls is Jesus, He is more than life to me. And the fairest of Ten Thousand, in my blessed Lord I see." I was able to freely worship to my deepest depths, praising my Lord surrounded by all of the people I love, accompanied by the sweet, sweet, spirit of music. Thank you Linda!
