In truth, some of the most amazing acts in this world go unnoticed. No fancy setting. No snazzy outfits. Often with much sweat and some tears.
This week will see the completion of nearly two decades of "un-spotlighted" service for one West Texas lady.
She has served for many years among a team of folks who work to better the lives of suffering, hurting children.
She has spent these years treading through oceans of tsunami size waves of paperwork and process.
Years of watching injustice and suffering...
Years of frustration and exhausting effort...
Years of doing all she could...
To make something right, in an upside down world.
So much of who I am and what I strive to accomplish is forever grounded in who she is and what she strives to accomplish. She has often wished a "lighter load" for me. And now, I long for a seaons of a "lighter load" for her.
I call her, Mom.
May, our Burden Bearer bless you, Mom, with His sweet rest as you begin this new season of life.
I am so proud of you.
He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me." Mark 9:36-37
