As the sun rises in the east, Amazing Grace is playing somewhere in the distance. A rooster is crowing at the daybreak and the land is coming alive. My heart is wrecked and my spirit is broken. But I know I must carry on.
I cannot be frozen with heartache right now. I have to keep traveling on to my sweet angels in Jeremie, Haiti. Yet, God wrecked me to the core last night. He showed me a new level of pain and sadness, my heart broke at the sight of a floor filled with children with Cerebral Palsy. A dozen sweet children with no mommy to scoop them up and give them the special love and care they need. I am grateful for what god is providing for them here, no doubt they face a much worse fate outside the gates of this place.
However, my fleshy heart longs for the love of a mother for them, but I will rest in knowing that they already have the love of the Father.
This sweet little man captured a chunk of my heart during this past Christmas season. I was blessed to be able to spend an evening with him while in Haiti.
It was a short visit but it rocked me to my core and has had me on my knees for him since. I held him and rocked him and rubbed his little forehead. His head weighs as much as his body. He simply wanted to be held and loved. And I sure could have held and loved on him for so much longer than time allowed.
I think of this sweet little guy often, quite often. Sometimes I cry for him. Sometimes I cry for those who aren’t as fortunate as him to have been found and rescued. But everyday I thank God for finding Ribency a home at New Life and allowing us to have this one evening to love each other.
There are many sweet faces at this incredible home. I invite you to visit their page and meet some of them – New Life For Kids
