As I approached the family I noticed that they had the following quote under one of her pictures.
Today I wondered what the purpose of my life is. Then God made me realize my purpose is "you."
I have been thinking about this all evening. How many times have I wondered this exact thing? How many times have I thought that there has to be more to my life? Something bigger, something with more meaning.
This made me wonder what if? What if my purpose is for the "you" that happens to be in my life today. My husband, daughter, family, friends and maybe even the stranger at the grocery store.
I, like many of you, see people going on mission trips, raising huge sums of money for charity and making a big impact. I think sometimes we get so caught up in the big that we forget that it is really the little, everyday things that can have just as much, or maybe more, of an impact. It is quite possible that the purpose is to live my life in such a way that I leave a positive impact on whoever the "you" in my current life happens to be.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
