He is Great in the small things

“For the person for whom small things do not exist, the great is not great.”

~ Jose Ortega y Gasset

It was in my time with my sister’s family today that I was thinking on the quote above.  It was a “small” moment, but one that I feel was divine and years in the making.  I was sitting in her living room and then my brother in law says to the middle daughter, “Marissa, you should get your church CD to show Crystal your dance.”  Now, I pause here to add that my sister and her family had never attended church until the past month, so I found this quite striking.  Marissa proceeds to put in the CD and the Rock of Ages song blasts throughout the house.  Pretty soon she is singing all the words and doing the motions too.  Then, I see that all 3 girls are singing along.  It brought tears to my eyes to see such joy in them to show me the things they had learned in Vacation Bible School.  Honestly, this has been a desire of my heart for 10 years now – to see my sister know the Lord and her household following Him.  What a simply beautiful moment.

Have a blessed evening,
