I've been thinking... #6

….about love that reaches “across the street and around the world”.  Simply start one of our VBS or Sunday school kids on this phrase and most of them will be able to finish is for you.  It’s a theme in our children’s ministry.  We look for ways to be a blessing here at home, in the neighborhood, and anywhere in the world that needs a particular “hug”.   

This past summer, our Vacation Bible School children responded with overwhelming generosity to a request for art supplies for Mitchell School (Southwest Philadelphia- ‘across the street’) and the CURE Pediatric hospital (Niger, Africa – ‘around the world’).   Our boxes were shipped out with love and prayers that the children who would receive them would know that God loves them and we care! 

Imagine my delight on Sunday morning…the very day when we were saying “YES, Lord” to an even deeper embrace of the children in Southwest Philadelphia (across the street)… to find these photos in my inbox from the children of Niger (around the world)!! 

So, I’m thinking that being involved in the love song that God sings over God’s children…here, there and everywhere…is a beautiful thing.  Today, I’m grateful for the opportunity to hum along.
