To my pals back home, I’m heading home tomorrow night, and will be back at school on Monday, but I wanted to share a few thoughts I had with you. I thought I knew what poverty looked like. I thought that it was the guy on the corner of Central and Washington, holding an "I'm hungry." sign. I thought that was the extent of it until I came to Ecuador. - Caleb (age 13), son of #CompassionBlogger @gracelaced.

"As schedules shift, so must our souls. And as my soul takes a deep breath in, I remember how it could be like this all the time if I wanted it to be. Not the schedule part, but the centered part. There is a strong stillness deep within me, the place where God lives. He is not pulled in ten thousand directions and in him, neither am I."

yeah, #FathersDay this weekend... and the thing is? "You can’t deeply love your parents until you grieve the deep wounds of their life.” From the post: [ when Father's Day can be hard ]

Make a Difference

Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Thy hand hath provided; Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

I will not change the world - Jesus will do that. But I can love one person at a time. Great foster mom quote.
