God Can Work with Many or with Few!

1 Samuel 14:6

Usually we clean house on Monday. Cleaning the bathrooms, sweeping the floor, dusting the furniture,doing the laundry, and putting everything in it’s proper place are all things Mom has encouraged us to do to keep the house orderly. But last week we had a problem: our cousins were coming and we were short on people. Donald, Jonathan and I were the only ones here because Dad was at work, Michael was up on the hill working, Robert was in Chicago, Esther was in PA with Mom, James was in Life Focus and Daniel was going through Sound Foundations! Helping Michael had taken all that morning and we would still need to help him some more later in the afternoon. We were in a predicament. but the three of us had a meeting and decided we could do it if we all showed determination. We did everything we needed to do and were ready when our cousins arrived!


Purposing to accomplish God’s goals in God’s time regardless of the opposition.

    Way to be few in number, but mighty in spirit! You were an important part of each family members’ day through your quiet service at home. Reminds me of when the children of Israel were quietly assisted by Moses, Aaron, & Hur amidst a major battle (except this would be Donald, Jonathan, & David 🙂 ). Thank you for your example in demonstrating the power of a unified family!

    Shewee, David! That was close. By the way, it was so wonderful to come home after a long three weeks to an orderly, clean, welcoming house! You must have kept it that way ever since the visit from our cousins. Thank you so much for all the work you put into it!

    What an encouraging account! I love the stick-to-itiveness and determinative spirit. Hold the fort 🙂
