Lockdown Day 22 Something Big

The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra and the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra have collaborated to bring music to uplift our spirits and as a tribute to our amazing health workers. Each artist recorded his part at home and the techies stitched it together to make this piece.

Sometimes we think we need to do something big for God. That is not true. We do what we can with the talents God has given us, even if it’s only something small.

I have been trying to sew masks for Alex, in between grandparenting, other sewing and blogging. I am one of sixty seven ladies sewing masks to distribute with food parcels to poor people in Alex. Some ladies make batches of a hundred at a time. I’ve only just limped to twenty over two weeks. Nevertheless, I am part of something bigger than myself and my efforts. Just like the techies stitched together individual artist contributions to the music above, God is able to stitch together every little act of kindness, every little word of encouragement, every small act in his name to make an amazing symphony that can make a difference to the world.

We used to sing a lovely little song in Sunday School.

Jesus bids us shine with a pure, clear light, Like a little candle burning in the night. In this world of darkness, so let us shine, You in your small corner and I in mine.

Hebrews 13:16 reads:

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Let us all shine in our little corner even if we can’t light the whole room.
