because they already have captured my heart
Fools are put in many high positions,
while the rich occupy the low ones.
It absolutely breaks my heart that any of these sweet children are lonely, cold, scared, waiting for families
I may not have much money,
but I have hands that can go and hold them
I may not be able to adopt them all,
but I can give my time,
I can be a voice when they have none,
I may not have a semi to bring tons of food,
but I can roll up my sleeves and stir pots,
I can go into their villages and bring what my two hands can carry.
I may not be able to take away all of the hurt and loneliness,
But I can step into their lives,
learn more about how to love and pray.
I may not have all of the answers,

“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.’
So, we pack and we pray and we eagerly anticipate all that our eyes will see, our hands will touch and our hearts will hold....because God just does not fail.
