What Can You Do This Week To Help See a Child Walk in Restoration?
By on January 25th, 2011

What is your part to do James 1:27 (True religion that God our Father accepts is to care for the orphan and the widow.) Some can bring dinner to a family that has adopted, some can clean house, some come tutor, some can provide respite, some can foster care, some can adopt and there is so much more we can do….  What can you do this week to help see a child walk in restoration?  Find a Family and help….. We can make a difference if we all work together!

While we were playing…
… they were restrained
While we were tucking our kids into bed…
… they were alone
While we turned up the heat…
… they laid in the icy cold
While we wrapped our children in blanket sleepers…
… they laid in their own excrement
While we sang songs and listened to music…
… they listened to the screams and cries of those around them
While we rocked our babies…
… they silently rocked themselves
While we hugged our kids…
… they scratched at their own faces and pulled their own hair for stimulation
While we cried over scraped knees…
… they moaned in their loneliness
While we brushed our daughters’ beautiful hair…
… they had their heads shaven to stave off the lice
While we fought off the flu with love and nourishment…
… they got the flu and went Home.

No longer suffering… but so many more still are.
In memory of those that have never felt the love of a family, but have passed away alone.
