My friend Jaime posted this on Face book today and it just touched me. This video is very long and is kind of like a documentary but worth your time. I know many people are not called to adoption or can't at this time but I think many can if they are honest. It is very easy to get wrapped up in our daily lives which includes serving ourselves and our immediate family. If we get out of our bubble and see what God places in front of us we could all change the world one step at a time. The next best computer, phone, car or purse will not fulfill your heart like when you serve others. God does something magical to you heart that can not be anything but God living in you. That love you feel is how God feels about each one of us and we get to feel that love. This Thanksgiving keep foster kids and orphans in your prayers. I can't imagine not having the love of a family. The pain at the holidays is probably unbearable. I really love the movie Antwone Fisher and if you have seen the movie there is a scene in which the main character who was in foster care has his first Thanksgiving being in a real family. As a young boy he dreamed of the very scene and then as a adult he finally gets to enjoy the moment. It very touching but probably the reality for many of these kids please pray for them this Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving friends
