The Dynamic Duo

Sometimes the desires of our hearts are not met in the ways we dream or imagine.

For the following two, this could be an accurate assessment.

Both had a special love for little ones, yet, traditional motherhood eluded them.

But, this did not define them, it seemed to redefine them.

Actually, I think it propelled them toward a special calling to minister above and beyond the household, to the multitude.

Isn’t it just like God to give us immeasurably more than our hearts can ever ask or imagine?

They are like superheroes to the little ones, who gaze longingly into their deep, compassionate eyes, and run quickly to embrace the warmth of their hugs.

Perhaps a better description would be that of royalty, since one deems purple as her color of choice, and the other is depicted by loved ones as, “Queen.”

Even so, this lead role in children’s ministry does not go to either of their heads–but, more to their hearts.  And, out of the overflow of their hearts, they give the royal treatment to the least of these, as they pour their livelihood into the lives of the next generation.

Ones who are well behaved…  

Ones who behave badly…  

Ones who are blessed with loved ones…  

Ones who are without a loving parent…  

Ones who come from affluent homes… 

Ones who need financial assistance… 

Etc…

It does not affect the love they minister in the least, to the least of these.

So, this shoutout is to you, Miss Selma and Miss Brenda!

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’  (Matthew 25:34-40 NIV)

  1. There is no words to describe the passion that my “BIG SIS” has for her ministry. And because of it many young lives have truly been touched in many areas of the world. Myself and my own ministry would not be where it is today if it was not for the Godly example that she lives each day. A Hero is forever!
