Inside my heart I often ponder and dream.
While I care for my beautiful family and enjoy the blessings around me, deep inside my heart I know there is so much more to life... so much more.
My heart aches for the lonely, the hungry and needy. I often think of the abused, abandoned and the lost.
And I know one thing... I cannot just think about them and then go on with my own little life.
So, inside my heart I often cry. I dream of what I can do to help, I give what I can and I talk to my children about what they can do to help.
And I pray.
Sometimes I feel guilty to live in such a plentiful land with such freedom and grace, and yet even in this land of plenty there are so many also who are suffering, lonely and in need.
It is easy to become overwhelmed with it all... but it's amazing what a difference one helping hand can make.
Inside my heart I hope that I can make a difference.
"Three things will last forever — faith, hope, and love — and the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13)
