When you joyfully do little things like they are big things then God will do big things like they are little things.
 Jesus said, “whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much” (Luke 16:10 NIV). 
Somewhere in your sphere of influence, someone is aching for a little encouragement. They don’t need much—just a simple word of hope or a small act of kindness.
Of course, the little things can be easy to miss. After all, they’re little. And in a fast-paced, chaotic culture, the newest and shiniest toys can distract us from the details that really count. You’ve got to be intentional when you look for the little things. It’s a lot of work, but it’s worth the extra effort.
Why? Because little things really do matter.
Last Autumn we hosted two“Soup Lunches”which were well attended and very yummy, thankyou to the cooks of various recipies, fun and friendship were shared at the table and Money raised along with donations towards our two Harvest appeals.
We are pleased to report 30 Shoeboxes were sent via Operation Christmas Child so that 30 Children will open a present and experience the joy that brings, we also sent a donation of £120 towards shipping costs,In the spring we will find out where exactly our boxes from Bibury went as they are being tracked and we thank all those from the village and school who sent gifts.
We also sent a huge collection of tinned goods to the foodbank for those locally in need ,thankyou for supporting the appeal.
We wish you all a PROSPEROUS, HAPPY NEW YEAR  AND MAY ALL YOUR CHOICES BE WISE ONES.

Are you wondering what you may achieve this year? Maybe you dont feel very important in society you may feel a little insignificant.
An old Proverb says; For want of a nail a shoe was lost. For want of a shoe a horse was lost.For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost. For want of a message the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
