There is a need that vulnerable children have... a need that is far greater than any physical need. Yes a roof over their beautiful heads, food in their tummies, education, you know... the needs we tend to fund, but this is a need money can't buy. It is the greatest need for any human being, it is the need to be loved and to love. A consistent kind of love, a love that never ends, a love that will come back, a love that just sits there and lets the tears do the talking, a love that rebukes, a love that sees no failure but only opportunities, I could go on and on about this type of love. During my time at Emerald Hill Children's Home I realized that LOVE is the children's greatest need. All things stemmed back to the need to be loved and to love.
I miss the children at EHCH so much. I'm so glad I got to see their beautiful faces again, even if it was just in a dream.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails!
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
