Love those crib slats? How about the fact that this child's diaper is completely soaked? That this child won't be getting out of this bed today?
I just returned from Ukraine. Well, I've been home about a week. It takes me that long to get over the jet lag and process the whole experience. Add in some doctor appointments and a holiday and it seems to take forever to get back to normal.
You can read about the trip over at Project TLC. I just wanted to share my personal feelings here about what I experienced.
Even though it was plain to me that God had been very busy planning all sorts of wonderful moments for us to experience and inroads to make, the disappointments of the trip are weighing heavily on me. I know that God is working in these dark places, even we are not there, even when we are not thinking of them. He's very much in control.
So why doesn't He just fix things for these children? What is the purpose of it all?
Please don't forget the children living lives of quiet brutality in Eastern European orphanages. They are hidden treasure.
"Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.” Luke 9:48
