Meals On Wheels!

Once a month on Tuesdays the girls and I deliver meals to the elderly (Meals on Wheels). The girls enjoy it and I am hoping through this and other things we do they will develop a tenderness for those in need.

Because their life was so different not so long ago, I would have thought that would have come to them naturally but it did not. It is something that needs to be cultivated, nurtured and encouraged.

They have more of a sense of individual survival than a sense of empathy for others. I can't blame them- they all had to fight for their personal survival. 

God Bless the Orphans. There are so many that need homes. It is heartbreaking to look at the waiting children and yet I feel so called to do exactly that.

After tucking in the girls, Hubby and I talked about how rich our lives are with these children. Their needs are so simple and so basic. Love, family and a home is what they so desperately need.

To others our family seems so odd but it is the others that are missing out. They are not hearing the call.

I wish they would. I wish they would bring the children home. They don't need to bring so many home, just one or two if that's what they choose.

What a difference it would make in the life of that child!

My heart is filled with joy when I know there are others out there who understand what living for God is all about! Blessing on all your family, young and old!

I so agree! The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few.

I hear you on that.....There is a little 8 year old girl from Erin's orphanage that I would love to bring home as my daughter, but it won't happen, I am hoping to be able to adopt again sometime. I think it is awesome having the girls do services like meals on wheels and feed the starving kids to help them learn about less fortnautes ones.

You are so right Jean, unfortunately many view the orphan as a burden, it's heartbreaking.
