I found her in the village. She is the tiny girl who I fell in love with at first sight. I show people her picture and kinda of make a joke saying, "I wish I could take her home with me." But it's true. I really wish I could take her home with me. And not just her. Lots of them. Bring them home and love on them with all the love in my heart. Make sure they are clean. Give them something nice to eat. Teach them about Jesus. Sing songs and tell stories together. I know God wants to teach me something through this longing in my heart. Maybe He wants me to have just a tiny glimpse into the way He feels about ME. If my heart can long and ache for this little child, whose name I don't even know, how much more must my Heavenly Father long for me.

How great is the love the Lord has lavished on us that we should be called the Children of God. And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1
