We tagged along with Mom and Dad when they went for a visit to the Chrystal Children's Home. It was one of the Woman's Fellowship activities.
Isabelle had a blast with the children at the home. And I had a ball snapping away.
My little girl is too young to benefit and experience any emotional lessons from this visit. But for me, getting to know the children is getting to know my own blessings and to be thankful. The blessings of having our parents and their unconditional love. Many times we take our parents' love for granted when this is what the children long for most. Most of them were abandoned by their own parents when they were very young and some of them were left wandering the streets at very tender age. It is heartbreaking and bitter to listen to their stories.
My heart and prayers are with them. Thank the Lord that His love has placed them in a proper home and His love found its way to their once inadequate and insecure lives. May God's grace and mercy continue to keep them happy and bless with them a happier childhood every child deserves.
