The entire month of February Sweet Sleep has chosen to “Share Love” with the world by telling stories via our blog and FaceBook. It has been incredible to hear the stories of individuals and groups coming together to be incredible advocates for orphans around the world! I cannot help but be challenged and encouraged by each of these stories. I cannot help but be challenged by the Word that has inspired them to do what they do!
I do not know about you, but there are many days when I am lucky to be able to claim even one of those qualifiers. In fact, I think I need to add a part to 1 Corinthians 13. Love is HARD. Love is not what it seems on television. It is not something that you can create by a streamlined process. It’s really not something you can fake. That’s why love is the way that the world will know that we are followers of Christ. It’s something that only He can give. After all, God is love (1 John 4:8).
--Sarah Edwards, Sweet Sleep Director of Student & Church Initiatives
