Yesterday, we went to the children’s home. We met all the children and got to play with them a little bit. I met this little girl named Catherine. She is two years old and the youngest child in the orphanage. She absolutely stole my heart! I have held her the last two days and haven’t let her go.
Today when I got there I found her in the crowd of
children and went to go get her. She went right to me and we went to
worship. While we were listening to Cayleigh speak she fell asleep in my
arms. I loved that she felt so loved and safe that she could fall
asleep. She always plays with my hair and touches my face. She looks me
in the eyes with such a passion and I can definitely see the love of
Jesus in her eyes. She also tries to do everything that I do. When I hum
to her, she hums. When I bend down and give her a big smile she will
bend down and give me an even bigger one. She looks up to me and I love
I was sitting in the dirt with her playing and
she saw that I had dirt on my hand. She grabbed my hand and began wiping
all the dirt off. I guess that was a way of her wanting to protect me.
Today I felt like crying when I left her. I just want her to go with me
so I know she is protected. I know that the moms there take very good
care of her but I need her with me. She doesn’t really need me but I
need her. I think about how much I love her and know it’s not even close
to the love that Jesus has for her. I hope that she feels as much love
as I do when she is in my arms.
Thank you Jesus for Catherine and for
dying on the cross for her. To the people that know me; y’all just
thought I loved kids before, I love them a million times more now!!!
