They've been gone a week.
Half my family.
In the Name of Jesus.
To a people in need.
I have missed them.
Their journey home, begun.
While they will long to be home;
a piece of them will always remain in Haiti.
I have not shared their experience.
I am praying for understanding and wisdom.
To hear their words.
To see into their souls.
I am looking forward to the homecoming.
Hearing the stories and seeing the glow from time spent giving.
Jesus came to serve.
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
He came to give .
A people in desperate need.
The walk to the cross; all he had.
We may serve overseas.
Or here in the states.
We are called.
In the name of Jesus.
Even when it's hard.
Each day is a gift.
Unwrapped as the day unfolds.
May this day be the day for you.
The day to embrace.
To live for more.
To lay down the hurt.
Seek the forgiveness so freely given.
May we all give today.
As Christ taught us.
"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
May there be joy in the journey.
I thank my God every time I remember you.
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy
