Everyone Has Their Little Part To Play

By

Lighthouse in darkThis is a story about a small candle carried by a man who was climbing the stairs of a lighthouse.

In their way up to the top, the candle asked the man, "Where are we going?"

We're going to the top of this lighthouse and give signals to the big ships on the ocean," the man answered.

"What? How could it be possible for me with my small light to give signals to those big ships?"



"They will never be able to see my light", replied the candle weakly.



"That's your part. If your light is small, let it be. All you have to do is keep burning and leave the rest to me", said the man.


A little later, they arrived at the top of the lighthouse where there was a big lamp with a loop behind it. Then the man lit the lamp with the light of the candle and instantly, the place shone so brightly that the ships on the ocean could see its light.

WE ALL ARE IMPORTANT IN OUR OWN WAYS. NEVER FORGET THAT!!

Great Blog. The lighthouse photo is so cute. A real feel good picture. It is so amazing that the smallest part is as important as a large part. It takes us all.

Gary-God has a part for each of us in life if we are open to it. One part is just as important as the next whether big or small.

I think the older I get, the more observant I am of how all the little things come together to make something happen.

This message is very powerful - and sweet - at the same time. Now, what if I sneezed and blew out the candle? Lol - that wouldn't be such a great part to play...just kidding. In a silly mood today. Seriously, a delightful and important reminder  Gary.
