16 I will dwell on your mighty acts, my Lord. Lord, I will help others remember nothing but your righteous deeds.
The evening’s last comedy ended, yet my eyes were not yet heavy with sleep. Sleep Monday night was delayed in coming, so the surfing for something to watch until my eyes surrendered to sleep began. Dancing and singing did not appeal to me, on I flipped until I hit PBS.
There on the screen was a pretty woman with a heavy accent and Meg Ryan, I was riveted. The woman was discussing the Cambodian trafficking of little girls I saw on the screen, the youngest was three.

I watched people who though oppressed and having almost nothing partnered with others who understood that for the future girls and young ladies, education is the springboard to a better life and that any sacrifice is worth the hope it provides.
As the last image left the screen and I turned the television off the tears flowed as the Holy Spirit spoke to me. He reminded me that I knit for hope, I knit so that in some small way someone is encouraged and able to feel the warmth and love from a sister, cities or even countries away. I was reminded that any contribution no matter how small to the welfare of others does make a difference.
Making His praise glorious!
