I had every intention of writing a post about marriage. Well, about how my marriage is going. But this morning, I snuck out early to start writing when I made a pit stop and read up on twitter, where I found a post that reignited my heart!
If there is one thing I hope to be clear on this blog, its where I stand in Human Trafficking. From Child Soldiers to Sex Slaves. IT HAS TO END...
I still get the treasured honor of rocking my little girl to sleep. It is a little gem that I don't want to let go of. The other night I was holding her in my arms next to the open window to help her breathe through a stuffy nose, and as she laid in my arms with her lashes gently resting on her cheeks, I broke down in tears.
I thought of the millions of innocent lives unheld, uncuddled, unloved. I thought of the battered souls abused, neglected, unwanted. And all I wanted to do was rescue them all. I thought of the innocence of my little girl and imagined it stolen from her, and my heart raged with a passion to get it back.
Then this morning, I fitted her beautifully curly hair into it's first ponytail and watched her run around the room in delight as we praised her beauty. And I saw a little girl before me. And as I watched her play, I thought of the other little girls with similar ponytails currently lost in brothels as man after man handle her with selfishness and greed.
And my heart shattered.
But I didn't lose hope.
I poured out my heart each time begging the Lord to send me! To send my family. To send THOUSANDS and MILLIONS to rescue the innocent and redeem the abusers.
We aren't a better breed. We aren't in any higher stature than anyone else. But we have much that we must give back!
And I write what I write to encourage. My stories I share aren't to depress a Nation that has so much with so much potential to help, but to encourage those to do something about a world that is so desperately in need of Hope and Love.
There is so much to be done! So much!
I encourage each of you to GET EDUCATED. Believe in the POWER OF PRAYER. AND DO SOMETHING.
and there are many many more....
