In February 2009 I read a book,
that broke my heart,
that made me ask questions,
that made me "SEEK."
It is a word I continue to hear.
That pulls me closer.
Closer to God and His heart.
In October my children and I sent off these sweater to the very orphanage I had read about in the book, "Silent Tears" by Kay Bratt.
And today those sweaters ... especially this one, warms a sweet child.
From my hands in Iowa buttoning those buttons, putting it in a box and mailing it far away, to his/her caregiver now buttoning it over that sweet, small, warm body ...
The Lord is good and has great plans far beyond what we can imagine.
On this cold morning here (18°F outside,) I am thankful and warmed with the reminder that someone far away is warm and wrapped in a love that goes beyond being seen. But I hope they DO see it ... and I hope they DO feel it!
If you haven't read "Silent Tears: A Journey of Hope in a Chinese Orphanage," by Kay Bratt, I would highly recommend it to you!
It will move your heart and hopefully change your life.
