This past week, I’ve been doing a little additional training with my staff on note documentation. As everyone knows – if you didn’t document it – it didn’t happen! With my care coordinators, I asked them to think of the “big picture” of what they were doing. Example: What if a client needed a photo ID? It may seem like a little thing, but “in the big picture”, it could enable that person to apply for disability, apply for housing, apply for a job, get a post office box, cash a check, and the list goes on and on. When you look at the “big picture,” helping someone get a photo ID is HUGE!
What about your actions today? In the big scheme of things – did your actions or words make a difference? Did your smile brighten someone’s day? Did your example influence someone to dress modestly? Were your words kind, honest, and encouraging or were they harsh and hurtful? Did you use your words or deeds to draw attention to yourself or did they give God the glory? In the “big picture,” did you use this day to teach others about Christ, His Church, and what needs to be done in order to become a Christian and remain faithful?
We tend to think that the “little things” are just that – “little things!” But, when you look at the “big picture,” those every day “little things,” like kind words spoken in a pleasant tone or the example of how you handle a stressful situation, could determine not only where you will spend eternity, but they could also determine whether you take someone with you to heaven. Other souls are the only things that we can take with us to heaven. “In the big picture,” did you make a difference today? God Bless, Courtney
