Her passion for cooking started with one aromatic meal, served up with love and a cheeky smile.
Her love for her husband was rekindled after one thoughtful note, slipped under the table at dinner.
Her desire to truly live again was sparked by one story of survival in a country far more turbulent.
Her week was improved by one pot of tea after a day of tears.
Worlds changed when he watched one video on child trafficking and decided to do something about it.

Moments in time. Simple gestures. Brief turning points. The little things – as well as the big things – can change lives.
What meal will you cook?
What note will you write?

Forget about your big-picture legacy for a moment, and consider your daily legacy.
What impression will you leave your neighbour, or your co-worker, or your uni friend, or your spouse?
How do your actions show that you truly love God, and that his love lives in you?
It only takes a spark to get a fire going, just as it often only takes one gesture – one story – to change the world around you.
Oftentimes the smallest things make the biggest impact. 🙂
Very true! I think we can forget the power of ‘small’.
I’ve been working on this lately…I just sent a letter this week to my BFF from high school. We drifted apart and I wanted her to know how much her friendship meant to me back then. It’s awkward being vulnerable but also very connecting…
Good on you for taking that step and making a connection. Difficult to do, but I’m sure it meant a lot to her.
Powerful post, Ali. 😀
This is so good!
