Before we started serving our local HS last year I had just watched The Hobbit and the one line that stuck out to me was this, "I found it is the small things, everyday deeds by ordinary folk, that keep the darkness at bay. Simple acts of kindness and love." -Gandolph
I have cried a few times this week after being deeply grieved for these High School students that we get to care for. It is hard to hear their stories but there is great joy and hope in watching them come alive, succeed, understand and desire to live a different life. Everyday deeds by ordinary people. It starts with love. It's not hard, love God and love His people. It's the small things.
