The King will reply, "I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!" ~ Matthew 25:40
This past weekend I had the privilege to attend a Women of Faith conference here in my hometown with my mom, mom-in-law, aunt, and sister! To say I was blessed is an understatement!
But, if I am being completely honest here, the event that truly changed the whole weekend for me, was when I heard the words of Matthew 25:40 spoken by Luci Swindoll and described to me in a way I never considered before. I came home Friday night and with tears in my eyes, explained to my husband that I cannot wait any longer. I need to do this. Something that has been on my heart for 5+ years...ever since attending my first Natalie Grant concert!
We prayed together and agreed together and on Saturday morning, I stopped by this booth:
I left there with a picture of the most amazing little boy! A little boy whose eyes are speaking volumes to my soul. A little boy whom I can't stop thinking about; praying about! A little boy whom I've fallen in love with already and whom I have yet to really meet and get to know!
God is so good! If He is blessing me by picking up a card and picture of a child in need, I can only imagine the blessings this little boy is going to be receiving on the other side!
In the words of Donna Galli, a fellow sponsor, "I can't do everything, but I can do this!"
