There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish.
A mother’s day is full of small tasks like making sandwiches and packing lunches while juggling tight schedules and finicky eaters. Children seldom say “Thank you” for their crackers, cheese, apple slices, and yogurt; and it’s natural for us to sometimes resent the onslaught of small, daily duties that come our way.
But Colossians 3:23 says, “…whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.” Imagine packing that lunch for Christ! That’s what happened when the mother packed the lad’s lunch in John 6, and it’s a lesson about our Lord’s ability to bless our small chores. A 1902 publication contained a prayer written by a woman named Olive Kimball, and perhaps it’s just the word you need today:
Dear Father, as we realize that we can do but little, may that thought never discourage us, but may we eagerly do whatever our hands find to do. Help us to realize that life is made up of nameless little things, and that true happiness only comes to those who find comfort and contentment in the doing of life’s smallest duties … Wilt, Thou, oh God, bless the ministry of small things if done in the Master’s Name. Amen.
Faithfulness in the small things will lead to blessing in the big things.

After a one and a half year hiatus, my family has finally rejoined me. GOD is GOOD!!!
This is just a trip down memory lane for my kids, If they ever happen to stop by.
I am hoping that you received these gifts. They were all send to the pastor of the Church you attend (Mr. Daniel Davidson) when you were in 4th and 5th grade. I am guessing you received the gifts even though I have no confirmation of any sort. I am really tired of having to go talk to different people to get some information on you, so I am ceasing all efforts to communicate with you, because the powers that be does not want that to happen.
I am sure by now, you will only have a vague memory of me, that is most likely littered with character defamation’s. If it is in GOD’s will, you may get a chance to know me, if not, it’s still in GOD’s immaculate will. Till that time, goodbye.
